As far as sweet treats go there is nothing better than a good chocolatey brownie!

Best Brownie Recipe


  • 250 grams butter
  • 250 gram bag of dark choc melts (or equivalent block of dark chocolate)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 c walnuts and/or milk choc bits


  • Melt butter, chocolate and sugar together in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Allow to cool slightly and add eggs and vanilla.
  • Stir through flour and add nuts and chocolate bits if using.
  • Bake at 150 deg. C for about 40 mins
  • Check that it is cooked through – a skewer inserted should have some moist crumbs clinging
  • Allow to cool and serve with a dusting of icing sugar if desired

Variation: add white chocolate bits and a cup of frozen raspberries instead of nuts and milk choc bits
