A Ferrero Rocher tasting brownie without actual Ferrero Rocher’s in it? Yes please!! These were a hit with my taste testers (some for my family and some for my work) – so I guarantee you, with a table of food, these will always be the first to go!!
The brownies get the Ferrero Rocher hazelnuty-ness from the Nutella and crushed hazelnuts, and try to place the whole hazelnuts on top so that when you cut it, you get one in the middle of each piece (like a whole hazelnut in the middle of a Ferrero Rocher). Sooo good and addictive!
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
This is a super easy brownie recipe. It takes 20 seconds to mix with a Thermomix, and can be mixed in 1 bowl if you don’t have a Thermomix!
This is a variation to the traditional chocolate brownie and is super quick and easy to make! The Milo is the hero of this brownie, and adds to a nice chewy texture! Keep in mind that the amount of sugar is due to the ‘chocolatiness’ of this brownie being from Milo and cocoa powder. Traditional brownies are generally made with melted chocolate (and less sugar as the chocolate has sugar in it). If you prefer a traditional type brownie, and if you love dark chocolate, try my Double Dark Chocolate Brownies which are also super delish!
Add all ingredients to the bowl
Mix 20 Seconds/Speed 5
Pour and spread into square baking tin (the mixture is quite sticky)
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes at 170 degrees (preheated)
Once cooked and cooled, cut up into squares to serve
