Kim's Brownies

Kim is Liyana's friend from Manchester. She came to visit and made this brownie for us. It was so simple and delicious. Although I only got to know Kim for like what, 2 hours, she kindly passed me this recipe. Thank you very much, Kim and Liyana. I call it,

Serious Chocolate Brownie

Mix A
185 gm dark chocolate bar
185 gm butter

Mix B
85 gm plain flour
40 gm cocoa powder

Mix C
3 large eggs
260 gm brown sugar

50 gm white chocolate chunks
50 gm milk chocolate chunks

Melt Mix A. The easiest way is to use the microwave. Leave aside.
Beat Mix C until fluffy. Then add in Mix A and Mix B. Lastly, add the chocolate chunks.
I usually use a 8.5x8.5" tin. If you like thicker bites of brownies, use 8x8" tin. Line the base and two sides (extra length of baking paper on the sides). Grease all over. Bake at 180C for 35 minutes. Don't over bake. Else brownie won't be chewy.
