How to make Cadburys Heroes Chocolate Brownies

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and grease and line a square baking tin.
  2. In a heatproof bowl, melt the unsalted butter and chocolate together. You can do this by placing the bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler or bain marie) or by using short bursts in the microwave, stirring frequently to avoid burning the chocolate.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and caster sugar together until well combined.
  4. Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture to the egg and sugar mixture, stirring until smooth and well combined.
  5. Sift in the cocoa powder and plain flour into the mixture. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Gently fold in the Cadbury Heroes chocolates, distributing them evenly throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter). The exact baking time may vary, so keep an eye on it.
  9. Once baked, allow the brownies or cake to cool in the pan for a bit before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, cut into squares or slices and enjoy your chocolatey treat!

FAQ

How should I store these brownies?

Store the brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer shelf life, store them in the fridge.

Can I make these brownies ahead of time for a holiday party?

Yes, you can prepare these brownies a day in advance. Just be sure to store them properly to maintain their freshness.

Can I freeze these brownies?

Yes, you can! Once cooled, wrap individual brownie squares in cling film and store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.

How do I prevent the brownies from becoming too dry?

Don’t over mix the brownie batter and follow the recommended baking time. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with a few moist crumbs.

Top Tip

Achieving Clean Slices for Your Cadbury Heroes Chocolate Brownies

Let your brownies cool completely in the baking tin before slicing. To ensure clean and equal cuts, run a sharp knife under hot water, wipe it dry, and then make each cut. This helps the knife glide through the fudgy texture, preventing the brownies from sticking to the blade and resulting in neat squares.
