Cookie Recipe Exchange.

I was so excited last week to hear that Jessica over at The Mom Creative was doing a Cookie Recipe Exchange. It started yesterday but unfortunately I was unwell so have decided to take part today :)

I have the biggest sweet tooth - seriously when I go to a restaurant I look at the dessert menu before anything else.

One of the biggest things I associate with Christmas are smells/aromas of cooking and baking. I always have to bake at least one sweet thing in this festive period. I am not a fan of cookies but I LOVE brownies! Who doesn't? So I have decided to share with you my favourite recipe and encourage you to share your favourite baking recipe on your blog using this super cute button below.

Snow-Flecked Christmas Brownies.

You will need:

  • 375g of dark chocolate
  • 375g unsalted butter (make sure it is at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract - make sure you smell it, it's lovely :)
  • 6 eggs
  • 350g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 225g plain flour
  • 250g white chocolate buttons or cubes.

1. Preheat the oven at around 180C or gas mark 4.
2. Grease your brownie tin at the base and sides.
3. Melt the butter and dark chocolate together  - I love the marble effect at this bit :)
4. In a separate bowl or measuring jug beat the eggs with the sugar and vanilla extract.
5. Measure the flour into another bowl and add the salt to it.
6.When the chocolate mixture has melted let it cool a little bit before mixing in the eggs and sugar, and then the flour.
7. Then finally the best bit! Fold in the white chocolate buttons. Beat to combine smoothly and then scrape it out into your greased baking tin.
Bake for about 25 mins.
Just a little note, when the top has gone a little paler it means the middle is still very gooey and warm. Yum yum yum!!! You can sieve icing sugar on top to give it a snowy effect :)

It should feed between 8-10 people.
So....what's your favourite baking recipe? Please share and if you can link back on Jess's blog as she is doing a scrummy give-away!

Yum! These sound amazing....Now I just have to figure out how to convert all the measurements to US so I don't mess them up. Can't wait to try them! I have the biggest sweet tooth too!

Oooh, those sound amazing! Anything that has a something to do with brownies has to be good - I love the name of these! So wintery!

When I first read the recipe, I was confused by the measurements...then I realized you use the metric system :) Sometimes I'm a little slow!!

These sound really yummy! I am awful at baking, so I might give the recipe to my sister (the queen of baking) to make. I tend to burn anything I put into the oven. Now, I'm a great cook, if it involves savory dishes but pastries...not so much!
