Well it is a wonderful time of year with all the twinkly lights and Christmas cheer, however with the dark and cold nights there is no better way to get festive and bake a batch of delightful squidgy brownies for your family and friends.
I was recently asked at our sister company 'Sarah's Incredible Bakery' (www.facebook.com/sarah'sincrediblebakery.com) to bake some personalised brownies as they wanted a unique gift for her childminder.
This was such an exciting idea that I have a brownie recipe for you all to try and if you want any personalised toppers get in touch, such a great gift idea!
Finally, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017!
185g unsalted butter
185g dark chocolate
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
50g white chocolate
50g milk chocolate
3 large eggs
275g caster sugar
Break up the chocolate and butter and place in a bowl above some hot water. Melt.
While you wait for the chocolate and butter mix to cool switch on oven to 160C/gas 4.
Line a shallow dish 20cm square in size.
Then mix 85g plain flour and 40g cocoa.
Chop the white chocolate.
Break 3 eggs into a bowl and whisk in the caster sugar until thick and creamy.
Pour the melted choc and butter mixture to the egg and sugar mixture and very gently fold together. Be careful not to knock the air out !
Add the flour mixture using a sieve to get out any lumps. Finally stir in the chocolate chunks.
Pour mixture into dish and bake for 25 mins.
Make sure you cool completely in the dish before turning out and cutting into squares (approximately 12).
Enjoy with ice cream or whipped cream!

How to apply
Printed cake toppers will work on most cakes but the best results are achieved when used on smooth, fondant icing.
Before applying your edible print you’ll need to ensure your icing is slightly moist. The best way to achieve this without over dampening your cake is to spray a fine mist of water onto the surface of your cake before applying your cake topper.
