Dark Brownies with White Chocolate Chunks

Brownies with White Chocolate Chunks There are an infinite amount of things to add to brownies (I’ve already suggested Baileys), and today I had some left-over organic white chocolate, so I decided to cut it up and mix it in. I used darker chocolate for the brownie base than our usual recipe to offset the sweetness. It worked out quite well, although I had the temperature of the oven a bit too high from my last baking session, and I over-baked them slightly. The head is still a bit fuzzy from the festivites!

Brownies with White Chocolate CloseupIngredients:

250 grams chocolate (70% cocoa content)
165 grams butter at room temperature
3/4 tablespoons natural vanilla
300 grams sugar
135 grams flour
3 each egg
80 gm white chocolate cut into chunks


1. Preheat the oven to 180 C.
2. Butter and flour an 10 inch square baking pan. Set it aside.
3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Mix until smooth.
4. Beat the sugar and eggs together.
5. Add the vanilla.
6. Slowly pour in the chocolate and butter, mixing all the time.
7. Sift the flour, then add, mixing thoroughly.
8. Stir in the white chocolate chunks.
9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake 25 minutes (a knife should come out just about clean).
10. Allow the brownies to cool slightly. Then cut them into squares and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
11. Raspberry Sorbet is a great accompaniment for these…

Note: If you’re in the UK or Ireland, please read my comments on flour, or you will be very disappointed with the results!

    Hey Kieran — Stumbling across your blog has been one of the highlights of 2006. Thank you in particular for the photos from the Dingle Wren. I’ve always wanted to celebrate Christmas in Dingle, specifically for the Wren Day. Maybe 2007?

    My Irish grandmother used to buy chocolate lace for us each Christmas, sprinkling it on top of the best vanilla ice cream she could find. This year I found it available online:

    It was as good as I remember it and it was a big hit — particularly with the younger generation (we had the dark chocolate version, the only kind of chocolate my grandmother liked). I thought I’d pass on the link in case you hadn’t heard of this lovely stuff before (it comes out of Russia, not Ireland).

    Thanks again for the sweet words and photos from Ireland, and Happy New Year!
