Every had so much chocolate at Christmas you don’t know what to do with it? We all get more chocolate than we can handle at Christmas so why not bake with it? My brother and I came up with these blondies today- using a selection box!
They turned out really well and each square has a different flavour or texture from all the different chocolate bars we used!
I used my Raspberry and White Chocolate Blondie recipe with a few adaptations. You could use any chocolate you have been given, using between 100-150g.
50g White chocolate
50g Milk chocolate (optional decoration)
100-150g Christmas chocolate
100g Caster sugar
100g Soft brown sugar
1 Tsp vanilla essence
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1. Preheat the oven to 160C (fan).
2. Melt the butter in a pan and remove from the heat. Add 50g of white and mix in, this will melt with the residual heat of the butter. Set aside to cool.
3. Beat the eggs with a whisk, add the sugar and vanilla essence gradually while still beating until the mixture becomes thick and shiny. Once this is all mixed pour the cooled butter/chocolate mixture down the side as to not knock out the air and whisk gently. Add the flour and baking powder and carefully fold in.
4. Add chocolate (broken/chopped into small chunks)
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven and cool. Melt the 50g of milk chocolate, being careful not to burn. Drizzle over in whatever pattern you so choose. Allow to set.
7. Cut into squares. I like to trim the edges first to give a neater and more square edge.
9. Enjoy, if you have any room after all the Christmas feasting!
I hope you enjoy this recipe idea as a fun and novel way to use some Christmas chocolate!
Until next time,
