Every week at the kid's small school the parents take it in turns to provide "Monday munchies" and so they bring cake, slice or biscuits and the kids buy a piece for thirty cents. This raises a little money for the school and also makes the kids feel that they are not entirely missing out by the absence of a school canteen. Somehow I don't think they are missing out at all.
So it was my turn this week (of course leaving it to the last minute on Sunday night) and I thought I would try something a little out of the ordinary. I usually make Cinnamon anzacs, butter cake or these. But I felt like something a little more decadent, namely, chocolatey. Because of course I made a double batch, keeping one at home.
I used this recipe for chocolate brownies. If you haven't tried it you really must. The best brownie recipe I have tried, and surprisingly, it uses Dutch cocoa, not real chocolate. Which is great for someone like me who buys chocolate with the best cooking intentions, but it then disappears mysteriously. I cannot store chocolate. Of any kind.
It does require a little heatproof bowl/saucepan simmering, but apart from that it is really quite simple. With a deliciously moist chocolate result.
Is it just me or does anyone else have "difficulties" storing chocolate?
