Mint Chocolate Brownie.....




Who likes Chocolate? Who likes Mint?..... Who likes them mixed together in a sweet moist succulent Brownie??? If you don't, you're odd! (just joking - you're okay!)

This week I was dreaming about a minty chocolate brownie, so I got about and experimented. If you're on a diet this recipe is probably not for you BUT the mint patties I used did say "50% less fat" so I guess this makes them a little bit healthier....Right?! 




Here's what you're going to need... for delicious, delectable treat - 

Brownie Ingredients:
220g Cadbury Dark Chocolate, broken up into single pieces
250g Butter, room temp / chopped
1 3/4 Cups Brown Sugar

1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 1/4 Cups Plain (all-purpose) Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
4 Eggs
4 Nestle Mint Patties, Chopped (for a mild mint flavour - want stronger? add a few more)
1 Nestle Peppermint Crisp bar, Crushed (again for stronger peppermint taste - add one more)
1/2 Cup Cadbury Milk Choc Chips (1 cup - if you snack while you prep)

Ganache Ingredients:

100g Cadbury Milk Chocolate, broken up into single pieces
1/3 Cup Cream

Method:
Preheat oven to 160C (325F). 

Grease and line your baking pan (20cm square slice tin). 
Place the dark chocolate and butter in a large bowl over the top of a boiling pot of water. Allow chocolate to melt and combine with butter until smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature.




Place the sugar, cocoa, flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl and mix with wooden spoon until combined (lump free). Add one egg at a time to the dry ingredients using an electric mixer on low speed, mix until smooth. 




Slowly add the melted chocolate to the mixture and combine with an electric mixer on low - medium speed. 
Once all combined, turn up to medium/high for 1-2 minutes until smooth. 

Now add your mint patties & crushed crisp bar to the brownie mix and fold in using a wooden spoon.




Pour out into prepared tin and sprinkle milk choc chips on the top.

Bake for 60 minutes OR until an inserted skewer/knife withdraws clean. Allow to cool slightly in the tin before turning out.

Because you can serve this brownie warm or cold you can go straight ahead and make the ganache.

Place the milk chocolate and cream in a large bowl over the top of a boiling pot of water. Allow chocolate to melt and combine with cream until smooth. (Stirring constantly to avoid lumps)

Pour ganache directly over the brownie. 





This brownie would serve well with some vanilla or mint ice cream. 
Or.. it is "simply fabulous!" on its own. 








ENJOY :)

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together).
