Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Makes: 50 bite-sized brownies | Vegetarian

INGREDIENTS

- 175g unsalted butter
- 200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
- 75g dried cherries
- 30g Nutribuddy Breakfast Shake
- 75g roasted chestnuts, chopped
- 75g cocoa powder, sifted
- 100g plain flour, sifted
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 300g golden caster sugar
- 4 free-range eggs
- Icing sugar, for dusting

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Grab a bowl and place it over a pan of simmering water. Pop the chocolate in and wait until it melts, keeping a close eye on it at all times.
  3. Stir the cherries & chestnuts into the melted chocolate and then remove from the heat.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, Nutribuddy Breakfast Shake & caster sugar.
  5. Add this mixture to your melted chocolate mix, then stir until it’s combined well.
  6. Beat your eggs then mix these in, too.
  7. Pour the entire mixture into the baking tin and put it in the oven for around 15-20 mins. The brownie should be springy on the outside but gooey in the middle.
  8. Allow them to cool in the tray for 30 minutes, then put them on a chopping board & cut into 3cm squares. Put them on plates & dust with icing sugar. Now they're ready to devour - yum!
