So this beauty was born:
Now I have to warn you, I gave a small piece to my three year old and she had a tiny bite and then requested some milk. She had to have a large glug of milk after every small bite and was immobilized for a while after.
My husband took some into work and gave it out in the morning and everyone needed a nap and couldn't work. It's just that stodgy. Just a little warning before I give you the recipe. With great power comes great responsibility.
This makes two cakes (about 8 inches, I make one 10 inch cake and a loaf tin one).
Make the brownies:
Make two quantities of the brownie recipe found here, but leave out the chocolate chunks. Split the mixture between the two tins and bake for 20 mins till firm-ish but not fully baked. Set to one side till cooled in tin.
Make the cookies (recipe from my Auntie Ros):
8oz plain flour
4oz soft brown sugar
4oz butter (at room temp)
250g chocolate cut into chunks
Mix all the ingredients together and spread a covering over the brownie base.
Bake for about 10 mins and allow to cool completely.
Make the chocolate fudge topping:
Melt approx 250g of milk or dark choc (whatever your preference) with about 200 ml of double cream. Allow to cool and thicken slightly, then spread over the top and allow to set. (In the fridge if you're greedy like me.)
