  • 1 20cm baking tin
  • 1 small bowl (for melting chocolate)
  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 pan of simmering water (or microwave)
  • 1 Whisk
  • 1 Sieve


  • 175 g unsalted butter
  • 200 g milk chocolate broken into pieces
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 3 eggs medium
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and grease and line a 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or in the microwave. If using the microwave, heat the mixture in short bursts until it has all melted. Set aside to cool slightly

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until thick and creamy
    150 g light brown sugar, 3 eggs
  • Gently stir the slightly cooled chocolate mixture into the sugar and egg mixture
  • Sift in the flour, cocoa and salt and gently fold until just combined
    100 g plain flour, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 pinch of salt
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 20- 25 minutes until a thin crust has formed around the edges but the middle is still a little wobbly
  • It will be tempting to dive straight in but let the brownie cool in the tin for at least 30 minutes – then get stuck in!
  • These brownies are incredible topped with a scoop or two of ice-cream and a sprinkle of crushed mini eggs, crunchie or flakes. The perfect Easter pud!


Top Tip!

You really can use any combination of chocolate in this recipe – we used a mixture of dairy milk, twirls and crunchies this time. You can also add mini chocolates into the batter before baking – munchies, mini eggs or mini cream eggs all work well!
