This recipe has been handed down to me by my friends mother, who also learnt it from a friend. These brownies are literally 40% sugar, so if I were a diabetic, I would use natural sweetners etc.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Melt the butter until resembling oil, and add the cocoa bit by bit. Mix with a wooden spoon roughly. You should get something looking like a really dark brown watery chocolate icing.
  3. Once again, add the sugar bit by bit. If you don't have brown sugar, you can use white, or even raw.
  4. Add your essence of choice. Vanilla is common and easy to find, but you can always add almond essence, strawberry essence, etc.
  5. Fold in the flour, pouring in little by little.
  6. By this time it should be hard to mix, but that's alright. In a separate bowl add your two eggs and beat with a fork. Add to the chocolate mixture using your wooden spoon.
  7. Finish off with mixing in white chocolate buttons. This step is important or else your end result will be like sloppy uncooked cake. If you want, you can use 1/2 cup choc buttons and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for a unusual taste in your brownie.
  8. Bake in your oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are black.
  9. Cut the edges off once cooked and cut into triangle. Dust with icing sugar.
  10. Serve cold :) Enjoy!
