Adult Chocolate Brownies (for my birthday!)

Not that kind of adult brownies, the type that aren’t for kids. These are dense and gooey, squishy and chocolatey with a delicious flavour that kids just won’t understand. This is probably my favorite brownie recipe ever! It only takes about 5 minutes to make the batter and is all mixed up in 1 saucepan. Even if you think you can’t bake you can manage these!


  • 150g butter
  • 3 tbs black treacle
  • 220g caster sugar (or 200g caster sugar and 20g muscovado sugar)
  • 90g plain flour
  • 70g cocoa powder

50g dark chocolate (anything over 60% will do)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g chocolate chips (I use dark)
