INGREDIENTS

Brownie Mixture 

  • McDougalls Chocolate Brownie Mix 3.5kg (500g for this recipe) - 285181        
  • Water 

Chocolate Frosting

  • 100g Unsalted Butter (at room temp) - 350131
  • 300g Icing Sugar (sifted)  - 320831
  • 40g Cocoa Powder (sifted) - 245251
  • 40ml Semi Skimmed Milk - 356341

To Decorate

  • 1 Packet Cadbury Twirl Bites - 374211
  • 1 Punnet of Strawberries - 601633

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. For fan assisted ovens, cook at 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.

Add the correct amount of cold water for 500g of brownie mix to the mixing bowl. Then, add the weighed out McDougalls Chocolate Brownie Mix to the bowl.   

With an electric beater (or hand beater if you don’t have one), mix on a slow speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then mixfor a further 2 minutes ona slow speed.

Transfer to a greased tin (33x23x5cm), lined with baking parchment.

Bake for 40-45 minutes and be sure not to overbake. The fully baked chocolate brownieshould have acrusty top and a dense, sticky texture. Leave to cool in the tin andonly decorate when cold.

For the Frosting

In a bowl, beat the icing sugar, butter andcocoa powder together with an electric beater on a medium-slow speed. If you need to, add a little of the milk at this stage.Beat until the mixture comes together and is well mixed.

Turn the mixer down to a slow speed andadd the milk to the mixture, a couple of spoonfuls at a time.  

Once the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to a high speed and beat forabout 5 minutes. The frosting should be light and fluffy. The longer you beat the mixture, the fluffier it becomes! 

Then,add the frosting to the top of the cooled brownie in dollops, and smooth over with a pallet knife. 

Finally, decorate with whatever ingredients you desire…we love Cadbury Twirl Bites and Strawberries. Then slice into portions and serve.
