I have heard and read about people who crave on pure chocolate, solid 100% cocoa and nothing else. Doesn’t it taste terribly bitter? Whether it is for dieting, health or personal indulgence, I couldn’t make myself believe that one would enjoy such dully bitter thing. On the other hand, when it is mixed with sugar and butter, it becomes a delightful treat delivered from haven.
My husband bought a package of Nestle 70% dark chocolate home 4 months ago, the bitterness taste from these glossy dark bars creep into my brain, and Yaseen was the only one who successfully finished a bar. Nobody really wanted to touch it though the silky smooth texture and beautiful aroma seduced us to get close, but it was not at all corroborated with our tongues.
We wanted to have some homemade dessert after lunch yesterday, but making a yummy beautiful cake with finger licking cream cheese frosting was really what I never had time for. We also could never figure out why I was so impatient with any dessert required baking for more than 15 minutes. Baking thin brownie was our afternoon dessert survivor solution. It was a perfect idea since we have been dying to use those shiny beautiful dark chocolate for quite sometimes now.
8 pieces of dark chocolate bar and a stick of butter should be enough for 3 of us…
I would suggest you to use caster sugar or powder sugar in this recipe because it will be dissolve quicker. We were out of it, so I used 2:1, white sugar: brown sugar to attain the gooey sticky texture. Be patient, and let it melt….
3/4 cup of plain flour, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1 tbsp cocoa powder, we really never need to whisk it, just stir….
2 beaten eggs make it even more luscious….
1 cup of hot milk is slowly tempered the batter without cooking the eggs.
Pour the batter over the large baking tray so it will cook fast.
Sprinkle some chocolate chip over just before baking…
10 minutes later…
Crunchy top and melting inside… it was so perfectly moisten. There was no time to cool down here. Everyone just grasp a slice 🙂

100 gm butter
8 Nestle 70% dark cocoa chocolate
3/4 cup flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs- beaten
1 cup hot milk
A handful chocolate chip
Melt butter and dark chocolate in the medium pot over the large pot of boiling water.
Add white sugar and brown sugar, stir for one minute and remove from the heat. Continue stirring until all sugar is dissolved
Add flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Mix well.
Add eggs and mix until smooth.
Gradually add hot milk and stir so it won’t suddenly cook the eggs.
Pour the batter in the large baking tray, spread it eventually with spatula.
Sprinkle over with some chocolate chips.
Preheat the oven at 190 degree C.
Bake for 10 minutes and check with a toothpick.
The top of the brownie was so crusty and crispy. When the knife dived down, the beautiful chocolate moisture oozed out. It was so fudgy and almost gooey. Like I said, no time to cool down, everyone loved to suffer from the hot chocolate heat a little bit.
