Strawberry Brownies!!

In a galaxy far far away… Well, not that far away and not in another galaxy I made chocolate orange brownies. Ever since I have been thinking of all the different flavor of brownies I could make.

It’s really where my obsession with brownies comes from. At one point in my blogging career I thought I would make it my sole mission to find the best brownie recipe ever! I called it {brownie quest}!

I know how clever I am, you don’t have to tell me.

Needless to say that the sheer amount of brownie recipes was just too much for me to handle and really all of them were a bit more or less of this or that. So, I found one that I liked and I adapt it to my specific tastes and cravings.

That is how I decided I wanted to make Strawberry Brownies. The decision was made even easier when I discovered Thornton’s Strawberry Milk Chocolate Block.

They turned out exactly how I wanted them too. I added a bit of strawberry flavoring just to accent the flavor a bit. Although I'm not convinced it needed it so that's why I listed it as optional. Enjoy!!

Strawberry Brownies:

185g unsalted butter
185g Thornton’s Strawberry Milk Block (2 ½ blocks)
85g plain flour
40g pure cocoa powder
50g white chocolate chunks
50g dark chocolate chips
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
75g dried strawberries
½ tsp strawberry flavoring (optional)

  1. Pre-heat oven 170C/325F/gas mark 3
  2. Grease a brownie pan or regular square tin (22cm/81/2in) with butter or line with baking paper, be sure to lightly grease the paper.
  3. Cut the butter into cubes and melt with the strawberry chocolate. Use your preferred method. Easiest way is to melt it is in a non-stick pot and watch it like a hawk. Set aside to cool.
  4. Sift the flour and cocoa powder and set aside.
  5. Beat the eggs and sugar together until thick and smooth. It should be pale and doubled in size. Mix in strawberry flavoring if using. 
  6. Poor the cooled chocolate mixture over the egg mixture and gently fold in. Add the flour/cocoa mixture and fold in. Last but not least stir in the chocolate chips/chunks/buttons and dried strawberries. I also chopped up the leftover half of the Strawberry Milk Block and added it in as well.
  7. Pour into prepared tin. Bake for 25 minutes. You can tell they are done when the top is cracked and crunchy but the middle is fudgy.
  8. Leave in tin until completely cooled. Then cut ‘em up!



notes: Please just let me believe I'm clever! ;0); {brownie quest}; Thornton’s --they have a lovely range of blocks/bars that would make interesting and yummy additions to these brownies.
