Quality Street Gooey Chocolate Brownies

Every Christmas I am left with SO MUCH chocolate I don’t know what to do with it. Other than sit and binge watch Pretty Little Liars with a tub of Heroes of course, I may have done that more times than I can count. This Christmas, or New Year should I say, I have challenged myself. Instead of getting rid of my Christmas chocolate by eating it during TV marathons, I’m going to eat it in the form of cake instead – in this case Gooey Chocolate Brownies. Good plan? I thought so too.

I’m going to try and incorporate my leftover chocolate into different cakes and cookies. I can remember my Christmas Popcorn Chocolate Bark being much loved so I’m hoping lots of you attempt these recipes too. I’m sure you’ve got lots of chocolate lying around.

This week’s recipe is Gooey Chocolate Brownies with the addition of Quality Street, the “Purple One”, Caramel Swirl and “The Green Triangle” to be exact. I though the Green Triangle would give them a bit of texture, the hazelnut in The Purple One would give them a bit of a crunch and of course the caramel would give them a gorgeous sticky caramel taste. I’m writing this before I’ve attempted to make them and my gosh is my mouth drooling.

I’ve used a basic Chocolate Brownie Recipe to make these, I didn’t think I’d need to do anything special with the base recipe as I’ll be adding the Quality Street to give them the “wow factor”. I hope so anyway.

Chocolate Brownie Ingredients:

Makes 12 small Brownies/6 large Brownies

135g butter or margarine

180g caster sugar

2 eggs

50g self-raising flour

35g cocoa powder

Your choice of chocolate filling. I’ve used Quality Street but you can use anything such as Chocolate Chips (around 70-100g).

 

Method:

Preparation: 10 minutes | Baking: 40 minutes

1. Preheat oven to 180c (160c fan), grease and line a baking tin.

2.  As you know, I love the all-in-one method. Especially now with my stand-alone mixer (thanks Santa). Put all of the ingredients except for your chocolate filling into a bowl and mix gently until well blended.

3. Add your chocolate. I like to add this after so they don’t get mixed up too much/broken. Of course, this will depend on the chocolate chosen. I chopped some of my Quality Street Chocolates into halves or thirds and left some of them whole.

4. Pour the mixture into your prepared baking tin and even the top with the back of a wooden spoon. Bake for 40 minutes until the top of the Brownies have hardened and a skewer comes out clean. Be careful not to burn the top. Allow to cool.

Enjoy…

What do you think of this Gooey Chocolate Brownies recipe? What a fun way to use up that leftover Christmas Chocolate.

Until next time,

      I do too! I’ve never thought of it either but was looking at it all the other day and thought of incorporating it into baking posts. We’ll have to see how the others turn out.

    Sounds like a good idea. I never have too much chocolate leftover. A lot of Halloween candy but not Christmas candy. I think it would be fun to incorporate some of the candy. These do look tasty.

      I think my family must go overboard because we always have so much chocolate leftover. We’re slowly but surely getting through it.

      Thank you! Yes of course, I think they’d work good with anything, the more chocolate the better in my opinion!

    Thanks for this recipe. I now can figure out what to do with all the excess chocolate got during Christmas and New Year instead of trying to eat them all and packing on the pounds.

    • Ami
      6th January 2018 / 12:00 pm

      Hehe we’ll I can’t guarantee you won’t pack on the pounds this way but it is a much more fun way of eating it all!

    What a great idea! We also have tremendous amount of chocolate left here after the holidays (for some reason ppl think that it’s a great idea to gift sweets and chocolate to a 2 year old, but us as a parent are not so into it, so we packed them away). So far I tried to melt some and make hot chocolate but cookies and brownies seems a faster and maybe even more delicious way to end them all :):):)

      I’m with you there. We can never get through it ourselves. Let me guess, the Grandparents? Brownies are a fab way to use them up, or Chocolate Bark, I’m making flapjacks with a chocolate drizzle too!

    Omg this sounds delish and seems so easy to make! Think I might have to go and buy some quality streets just to give this a try!
