I have to warn you, these brownies are sooo good but sadly sooo bad for your waistline. If you are on a diet, look away now.
Miss H is having a new school friend over for a play date tomorrow and she is so excited she’s been counting down the sleeps all week. I promised I’d make her something yummy today for their afternoon tea.
“What you would like me to make?” I asked her. “Nothing yucky! and not those ‘good for you raison and nut things’. I hate them!” She means my muesli bars, which I think I actually very yummy. “Ok, how about something chocolate?” I asked, “YES!!” she said, with a huge grin on her face.
I decide to go with a full fat, full chocolate, full of naughty brownie because I’m the best mum ever!!! That will surely earn me at least two love hearts (hand drawn of course).
I’ve added some smarties to these brownies to make them fun, but you could always substitute with nuts if you wanted to be slightly more healthy (walnuts would be great).
Here is the thermomix recipe for these super delicious, best ever chocolate brownies.
- 125g Butter
- 150g Raw sugar
- 125g milk chocolate (freddo frogs will do just fine)
- 230g smarties
- 3 eggs
- 50g plain flour
- 35g cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
- Weigh 200g smarties and crush them on speed 5-6 for 5 seconds (repeat if you need to). Set aside.
- Put the butter, sugar and chocolate into the thermomix and melt together at 100 degrees for 4 minutes on speed 1.
- Add the eggs and beat on speed 4 for 30 seconds.
- Add the four, baking powder and cocoa and mix together for 20 seconds on speed 4.
- Add the smarties and mix together on reverse speed 2 for 20 seconds.
- Pour into a lined baking/slice tray.
- Add the extra smarties on the top.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until they are firm and a few crumbs still stick to a knife when inserted.
- Serve on their own or with vanilla ice-cream.
- Enjoy x
If you’d rather have a healthier treat I do have a recipe for an amazing (almost) sugar free brownie which I promise won’t disappoint. You can find it here.
Do you make special treats when your kids have a friend over for a play date?
Can’t wait to try this recipe out on my co-workers.
Hope they like it xxx
can’t believe i have stumbled across another British mum of 3 living in australia with a thermomix. Going to make your brownies at the wend and your chic chip cookies now before school is out and chaos resumes.
Looking fwd to following your blog
Hi Sophie, Thanks so much for visiting. I so know all about the 3pm chaos, lol. Where about in Aus do you live and where in the UK are you from?? Sorry, I’m so nosey, haha xx
I’m 15 and it’s amazingly fun and easy for me to make for my older brother and his girlfriend and when my mum and sister sister visit us they love them x
I bet they love it when you’re baking Harridon :))
I am not really wanting to go out and buy smarties but have an absolute truckload of easter eggs, would you suggest just substituting the smarties with 200g of additional milk choc?
I’m pretty sure Easter eggs will work perfrctly. I’d love to know how you got on xx
🙁 100 degrees for 4 mins burnt my chocolate, butter and sugar mixture. Maybe it should be 60 degrees for 4 minutes?
Your link fior the healthy brownie is broken 🙁
