Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 12 – 24 brownies

- Try adding 250g of chopped white chocolate into the mix with the dark chocolate chunks at stage 6. It gives a great contrast in colour and because the chocolate doesn't really melt it creates a certain texture that is rather indulgent.

- To serve as a dessert just reheat gently in the oven for 5 minutes at 180°c, dust the top with icing sugar and serve with ice cream and a fruit compote if you like.
