Prep Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins


Chocolate crunch
3 1/2 ouncesButter
3 ouncessuger; try using caster one day and soft brown light another
1/2 ounceCocoa powder
5 ouncesSelf raising flour; can use plain flour with 2 tsp baking powder
1 Egg; beaten
Optional pink custard
1 packetBlancmange mix


Chocolate crunch
1Gently melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat
2Meanwhile weigh the rest of the ingredients
3When the butter has just melted, remove from the heat. Check the butter is not too hot then sift the sugar, cocoa powder and flour straight into the saucepan
4Add the beaten egg and mix everything around until it’s well combined. This recipe doesn’t need over mixing or the texture will change
5Dump the mix into a very lightly greased brownie tin and bake
6Either go for 180 for 25 minutes for a hard, dry ‘concrete’ or bake at 160 for about 15 minutes for something resembling more of a brownies texture (we call this version chocolate goo).
Pink custard
