Brownies oh Brownies

Who hates chocolate ? The answer is my husband. He said he's not a sweet tooth and he just love anything fried, such as pastel, bakwan goreng, risol, tahu goreng and many more. In the other hand, I love sweetness and absolutely I love chocolate brownies.

I've never made chocolate brownies before, but since I couldn't wipe off the image of chocolate melt brownies I saw on the internet, I put myself courageously to make one. After searching, googling and do a little research (if you don't mind), I found the famous chocolate brownies recipe. It's Nigel Slater Chocolate Brownies and of course with melted chocolate inside.

The inside part of this brownies is a bit runny, and yummy :D Everyone who loves chocolate and sweetness, will love this cake. So, here's the recipe. I just copy- paste from Sticky Steps.

Ingredients :

300g brown caster sugar
250g softened butter
250g of the best chocolate you can get (darker is better and aim for ~70% cocoa solids)
3 large eggs plus the yolk of another egg
100g plain flour (Nigel uses 60g)
60g of good cocoa powder
1tspn baking powder

How to :

1) Preheat the oven to 180C

2) Line a large baking tin (23cm) with baking paper
3) Cream the sugar and butter with a mixer until white and fluffy
4) Melt 200g of the chocolate and chop the remaining 50g into small pieces or “gravel” put this aside.
5) Lightly beat the egg mixture and introduce to the creamed sugar/butter slowly with the beater running slowly until combined.
6) Pour in the molten chocolate and fold with a spoon. Add in the chopped chocolate bits.
7) Sift in the dry ingredients and fold in with spoon gently as to not knock any air out.

Come on everyone, don't you want to make one ?

Chocolate covered Oreo

A very simple recipe, especially when you're not in the mood to bake a cake but you want to eat something sweet but simple and easy to make. I had a really good story to go along with this little recipe. A cup of left-over dark cooking chocolate, that I left behind for a day after my food photography project "When Strawberry met Chocolate". I didn't know what should I do with the chocolate. Then an idea popped out just like that "why don't you make chocolate covered biscuits".

So, here is the recipe of Chocolate covered Oreo Cookies

Ingredients :
- Oreo Cookies
- Dark cooking chocolate

How to :
1. In a stainless steel bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water, put in the dark cooking chocolate. Stir until melted, remove from heat.
2. Using two forks, dip Oreos (a couple at a time, depending on the size of your bowl) in the melted chocolate and coat both sides. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. (Decorate top of cookie with sprinkles or crushed candy canes, if you like)
3. Let set in refrigerate for about 45 minutes to an hour.

Easy, isn't it ? And your kids will love it if you make these cookies to joy them.
Have fun and enjoy....
