I didn’t just want to be a chocolate brownie. I didn’t want to be plain. I didn’t want to be ordinary.
I wanted to be Optimus Prime. The biggest, baddest goodest, most awesomeness Transformer ever. You can’t be plain and be Optimus Prime.
So I wasn’t just chocolate. I was nutty. And I was chocolate frosted. Chocolate nutty brownie overload. That was me.
Ok, so that wasn’t me talking above there, as in that wasn’t me ~ catty. That there was my brownie talking, and no I don’t have a multiple personality disorder. I mean, who the hell talks as if they’re a brownie?!
Yeah. Only cra-zee people.
Anyway, my brownie might have wished he was Optimus Prime but honestly? I’m a Bumble Bee kinda girl. Simple and sweet.
I was sort of excited plastering the frosting on the slab of brownie but truth be told, I thought the frosting overpowered the deliciousness of a plain nutty brownie and shhhh… I ended up scraping the icing off.
But if you’re still keen to give it a shot because oh I don’t know “your brownie” wants to be “Optimus Prime” (who the f*** comes up with this shit?), then here’s the recipe:
|Frosted choc nut brownie|
200 grams dark chocolate, roughly chopped
175 grams unsalted butter
325 grams caster sugar (I know, that’s a lot)
130 grams plain flour
50 grams chopped mixed nuts
200 grams icing sugar
75 grams unsalted butter, at room temperature
30 grams cocoa powder
150 grams cream cheese, cold
a 33 x 23 x 5cm baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
|Makes about 12 portions|
