Chocolate brownies are great for parties as you can get a few portions out of the one mix. If you want you can add some lightly roasted hazelnuts for a crunchy texture.

140g good quality chocolate
113g unsalted butter
15g cocoa powder
200g castor sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
95g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
125g chocolate chips


Combine the sugar and the cocoa powder
Combine the flour salt and the chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 177 degrees / gas mark 3/4 and place the rack in the centre of the oven.
  2. Grease a square pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and sugar.
  4. Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Finally, stir in the flour, salt and chocolate chips.
  6. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with a little batter and a few moist clumps clinging to it.
  7. Do not over bake.
