Seriously rich chocolate brownies

These brownies are seriously rich and delicious! 

I've made these brownies several times before and made these again this time for an afternoon party at the childcare. This time, the childcare food restriction is much more relaxed and is just "No nuts" only. That was easy for me...

My son love love love chocolate! And I would think that these brownies are one of his favourite because they are so rich in chocolate. I usually made these brownies with 70% cocoa dark chocolate but I've used milk chocolate this time because they are for little kids.

The top of the brownies cracked as I cut these brownies into small pieces but I reckon that the crackling top gives a nice sugary crunch to these treats.
The brownies has a very fudgy texture and it is delicious...
Here is the recipe from the Super Food Ideas, Apr 2010 issue

Make 15 large square slices.
150g butter, chopped
360g chocolate, chopped
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour, sifted
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chocolate bits
Cocoa powder, for dusting (I didn't do that)

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 3cm deep x 20cm x 30cm pan.
2. Place chocolate and butter in saucepan over medium heat. Cook with stirring for 3-5 min until smooth and combined. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar and caster sugar. Cool for 5 min.
3. Stir in eggs, vanilla, flour and milk and chocolate bits. Pour mixture into prepared tin. Level top. Bake for 35-40 min or until top is firm to touch. Cool in pan. Cut into squares. Dust with cocoa powder to serve.
I used 2/3 the recipe and use 20cm square tin and cut them into smaller squares as smaller bite size for tiny little mouths.

Happy Baking
