Who would have thought that something so decadent, so indulgent and quite frankly delicious, could be COMPLETELY CALORIE FREE?!!?! Noone, because they aren’t. In fact don’t ever actually work out how bad they really are for you because it will make you cry and reassess your life choices. These naughty little squidgy squares of heaven are full fat, triple chocolate and heartbreakingly good.
Now full disclosure here, as much as I wish I could take credit for it, this isn’t actually my recipe, it comes straight from the good people of Good Food and MY GOD IT IS GOOD.
So you will need:
- 185 grams Unsalted Butter
- 185 grams Dark Chocolate
- 85 grams Plain Flour
- 40 grams Cocoa Powder
- 50 grams White Chocolate Chunks
- 50 grams Milk Chocolate Chunks
- 3 Large Eggs
- 275 grams Golden Caster Sugar
- BORING THINGS FIRST: Preheat the oven to fan 160C/conventional 180C/gas 4. Grab a 20cm square tin and grease and flour. I never normally flour tins but it’s important with this recipe because if the sides are too wet it just all falls apart.
- Now the good bit: Melt the butter and dark chocolate together. Good Food suggests doing this in a glass bowl above a pan of simmering water however I am an extremely lazy cook so I just bang it in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
- The chocolate you use for this is actually important, make sure you use dark cooking chocolate not confection, I have tried confection and it is just too gooey and you end up with a pudding as opposed to brownies.
- When the butter and chocolate is melted, let it cool and use all of your self-control not to eat the entire thing because ohmygod chocolate.
- Whisk the 3 eggs and the sugar together with a balloon whisk or electric whisk until the mixture is pale and foamy and light and lovely. It should roughly double in size and if you are doing this by hand it takes FOREVER and gives you a pretty solid arm work out, keep going it is worth it.
- Add the glorious buttery chocolate, but make sure its cooled, and fold it in to the mouse with a spatula. Careful not to knock all the air out of it otherwise the five hours you spent whisking was completely pointless.
- Sieve in the cocoa and flour and fold in gently to get a fabulous fudgy mixture and finally mix in the chocolate chunks. I always use Green & Blacks because it is just the best.
- Pour into the tin and pop in the oven, Goof Food says for 25 minutes but I always find that it takes longer, anything up to 40 minutes so keep an eye on it! It’s really important not to under bake these because you just wont get them out of the tin.
- Once they are cool and cut..eat all of them and don’t share them with anyone. You’re welcome.
Happy Eating Brunchers!
