I’ve had a craving for chocolate, and recently saw a new recipe for chocolate brownies which contained ground almonds. Of course, delicious as plain brownies are, a little bit of extra “embellishment” is always good!
Brownies are comforting, dense, slightly stodgy, and very adaptable, and whilst my favourite is a chocolate brownie (I have yet to try cheesecake-type brownies, I’m sure I’ll love them too….) I thought a bit of peanut butter (Reese’s Peanut Butter Minis) and caramel (Cadburys Caramel Nibbles) would add a bit more indulgence.
I followed the recipe (unusual for me, I know!) and threw the extras in just before putting the mixture in the oven. I didn’t have the correct sized baking tin, and so ensued a lot of pulling out, testing, putting back in, re-setting the timer…..you get the picture!
But in the end I achieved my desired, dense, chocolately, slightly sticky, indulgent chocolate peanut butter and caramel brownies.
And the house smells deliciously chocolatey in the process – breathe….. 🙂
