I did a little bit of experimenting this weekend and came up with this recipe for Cadbury Crunchie Brownies. Cadbury’s Crunchie bars are a long forgotten childhood favourite of mine so upon spying a multi pack as I sauntered down the aisles of Tesco I decided I had to try and work them into my weekend bake. Brownies were on the agenda so I chucked as many Crunchie bars as I thought possible into my go-to Hummingbird brownie recipe, then sprinkled another on top for good measure!
They turned out rather well. The honeycomb inside the mixture melted meaning the brownies were lovely and gooey (you might want to up the time in the oven if you prefer a firmer result), but the bits on top still had a nice crunch to them.
Anyway, on to the recipe, which makes around 16 generously sized brownies …
Cadbury Crunchie Brownies Ingredients
128g Cadbury Crunchie Bars (4 multi pack bars)*
200g Dark Chocolate
175g Unsalted Butter
325g Caster Sugar
130g Plain Flour
3 Eggs (beaten)
Cadbury Crunchie Brownies Method
1. Line a 25 x 25cm baking tray with grease-proof paper and preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius (150 for a fan oven).
2. Break the chocolate and butter into chunks and place in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth.
3. Carefully remove the bowl from the heat and transfer the contents to a larger mixing bowl. Add the sugar and stir until combined.
4. Sift the flour into the mixture and stir again until incorporated, then stir in the beaten eggs until the mixture is thick and smooth.
5. Cut three 32g Crunchie bars into small chunks and stir them into the brownie mix.
6. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking tray, then cut the remaining Crunchie bar into small chunks and sprinkle them over the top of the brownie mixture.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. You want the top of the brownies to be going hard and flaky but the centre to remain soft.
8. Remove from the oven and leave the brownies to cool completely. Once cool, remove from the tray, cut into pieces and enjoy!
I’m really pleased with how they turned out. They got positive feedback from my very hard to please Godmother and we only had a few left in the cupboard by Monday morning.
