It was my house mates 21st this weekend and we decided to throw an alcoholic tea party… cocktails in teapots, bunting, cucumber sandwiches and of course, an excessive amount of baked goods!
One of my bakes included these deliciously indulgent triple chocolate Munchie brownies. If you’ve never heard of Munchies before, the best way to describe them is as little squares of dark chocolate filled with caramel and biscuit – what’s not to like?
I whipped up my tried and tested brownie mixture and added white chocolate chunks, milk chocolate chunks and of course..Munchies.
These brownies will satisfy any chocoholics craving and are the perfect bake for any occasion. Enjoy!
Ingredients (makes 12 brownies)
150g unsalted butter, soft at room temperature
170g good quality dark chocolate
2 medium eggs, at room temperature
225g caster sugar
180g self-raising flour
50g white chocolate, cut into small chunks
50g milk chocolate, cut into small chunks
1 sharing bag of Munchies (126g)- I bought mine here
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease and line a 23cm square tin with grease proof paper or use a silicone baking tin.
Gently melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of water on a low heat. Once melted leave on the side to cool.
In a separate bowl whisk together the sugar and eggs until frothy. Pour in the cooled chocolate and butter mixture and add the flour. Fold together until you have a thick chocolate mixture.
Add the milk and white chocolate chunks and the Munchies and fold together until incorporated into the mixture. Now spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, pushing it into all the corners, and smooth it out with a knife.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes until the top is starting to crack. (Depending on your oven they may take a bit longer, test the brownies by inserting a knife into the middle and if it comes out covered in chocolate put them back in. If the knife comes out almost clear and the top of the brownies are cracking then remove from the oven and leave to cool- brownies will continue to cook a little as they cool).
Cool completely before cutting into 12 squares and serving. Brownies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
