Ready in: 65 minutes
185g unsalted butter, cubed
185g high-quality dark chocolate, chopped
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
6 mince pies or 9-12 mini mince pies
icing sugar, for dusting
Pre heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line the base of a shallow 20cm square tin with baking parchment. Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl, in a microwave – cooking for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until fully melted. Once melted, leave the mixture to cool.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together with an electric hand mixer until thick and creamy (the mixture should leave a trail for a second or two when it is ready). Pour the cooled chocolate mixture into the sugar and egg bowl, fold together the mixture, until fully mixed. Be gentle so you don’t knock out the air.
Sift in the cocoa and flour mixture into the bowl and continue to gently fold together. The mixture will look dry and dusty, then fudgy. Spoon a little mixture into the prepared tin, then add the mince pies, leaving them whole. Scrape over the rest of the mixture, gently easing it between and over the pies. Level the top. Put in the oven for 25 mins. If the brownie mixture is very wobbly in the middle, it’s not quite done, so bake for another 5 -10 mins.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Dust with icing sugar. Once cooled, take it out of the tin and portion it up. The brownie will keep in an airtight container for a week and in the freezer for up to a month.
