Double Dark Chocolate Brownies

If you LOVE dark chocolate, this is the brownie for you!!

This is my husband’s all time favourite brownie which I have tweaked over the years until he said it was better than any other one he’d ever tasted, and would request this on a regular basis. I have adapted it from an old school Women’s Weekly Mocha Brownie Recipe. I’ve been making this for years, pre-Thermomix days, being one of the most regularly baked item in my house!

This is amazing served warm with oozing melted chocolate by itself or with icecream, however my husband loves this in bite sized pieces in the fridge with each bite with a bit of brownie and a bit of hard crunchy chocolate!

My Milo Brownies were a twist on a traditional brownie, however this brownie is so indulgent, it is the hard core stuff that you would get at your local bakery/cafe!

This brownie has chocolate in the brownie mixture, plus extra chocolate bits stirred through.  I use 100 grams Cadbury Old Gold 70% Cocoa for some of the chocolate bits as my husband loves his dark chocolate a little bitter, and I mix it with 50 grams dark chocolate chips (I use either the Costco Kirkland brand, or Nestle Dark Chocolate Bits).

 

Place a small bowl on top of the Thermomix lid and weigh out 150 grams dark chocolate. Set aside.
 
 
Add butter and dark chocolate to bowl
 
 
Melt 2 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2. Scrape down. 
Melt a further 1 minute/50 degrees/Speed 2 (you may need to melt a further minute or 2 if you are using larger chunks/chips of chocolate)
 
 
Add sugar – mix 5 seconds/Speed 5. Scrape down
 
Set for 1 minute/Speed 2 – add eggs 1 at a time through the MC hole throughout this minute
 
 
Add flour – mix 10 seconds/Speed 5
 
 
Add chocolate squares/chips – mix 10 seconds/Speed 3/Reverse
 
 
Pour mixture into square baking pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until firm
 
 
Wait to cool before cutting into squares
Dust with icing sugar to serve
