I just got home from the gym on Sunday morning, when my roommate handed me over a piece of folded paper torn from an Indonesian magazine and said “make me this.” I was nothing less than confused at first to see a page full of some random massages parlors’ ads, but on the other side was a recipe for KitKat brownies (also found here). It was a rather perfect timing since I had been looking for something to bake on the weekend (despite just coming home from the gym, naturally).
It was essentially a classic brownies recipe with some chopped KitKats added to the mixture and as toppings too. It was a delicious mix between chewy and crunchy, and I couldn’t think of better snacks to bring into the office the next day (got to start Monday mornings right).
115 gr unsalted butter
200 gr dark cooking chocolate, roughly chopped
225 gr granulated sugar
130 gr plain flour, sifted
20 gr cocoa powder, sifted (I used Nestle’s baking chocolate powder)
150 gr Kit Kat, chopped into cubes
- Preheat your oven to 190’C. Prep a 18x18cm dish with some baking paper, making sure to cover all the sides.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the sifted flour and coco powder (dry ingredients).
- In a pan, melt the unsalted butter and dark chocolate over medium heat. Stir continuously until it is shiny, smooth. Once completely melted, lift off the heat and let it cool for a bit on the counter.
- Mix in the granulated sugar using hand whisker or electric mixer on low. Let it dissolve into the warm chocolate mixture.
- Mix in 3 eggs into the wet ingredients.
- Mix in 1/2 of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of the chopped Kitkat into the wet mixture. Whisk briefly with a spatula until everything is just incorporated. You don’t want to over-mix.
- Pour mixture into the prepped baking dish and sprinkle over the rest of the KitKats on top.
- Bake in preheated oven (190’C) for 20 minutes on the top rack of your oven.
- Transfer the dish to the middle rack and lower heat down to 150 ‘C. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Let brownies completely cool before cut and served.
Ps. best served with a heaping spoon of vanilla ice cream!
