Dreamy, irresistible, totally rich and fudgy millionaire brownies.
Yes, you heard right! Millionaire brownies, like millionaire shortbreads, but even better.
On Thursday, I was asked to a birthday lunch. Immediately, I get excited because it’s a great excuse for me to bake something. I am literally like a child sometimes, squealing with excitement over sugar, essentially. Anyway, my brief was ‘Chocolate. Anything, I don’t mind but it needs to involve chocolate’. And that is certainly not a bad brief to have hey!
Where do I find inspiration? For me, it’s Pinterest. I love searching for new ideas, with or without a recipe, and replicating something seriously yummy I’ve seen. And I hadn’t even scrolled the page, before seeing these millionaire brownies. Millionaire brownies…erm, Alexa, why haven’t you thought of this before?? This is absolute genius.
So there we go. I thoroughly enjoyed making them, even though it took a while for the chocolate to go hard in the fridge. It just means more time waiting to give them a taste, but it was totally worth the wait.
I boxed these up in a cute box I found at The Range..I took a trip to the range, on the hunt for a cute fake plant/cactus to brighten Will’s flat up and quite literally came out with two big bags of cheese savouries (purely childhood memories right there) and these boxes for cakes. Not the most productive trip, but hey ho, I left with a smile on my face! And the boxes were a bargain. Get yourself down there!
I used this fabulous recipe from BBC Good Food.
1 x 397g can of Carnations Condensed Milk
1 x large bar of dairy milk
1 x medium bar of white chocolate
Follow the BBC Good Food recipe to make your fudgey brownies. Sometimes I love to add nuts, to give the brownies another texture but it's totally up to you. Take the brownie out of the oven and leave in the tin to cool. (They will continue cooking when you take them out, so don't fret).
Once your brownie is cooled, heat the condensed milk in a pan on the hob. You need to bring this to the boil, then turn the heat down a little and simmer until the consistency is thicker. Continue to stir at all times, otherwise you may risk it burning and you'll see very brown bits floating to the top! (I've done this my fair share of times) :)
Take your brownie, and pour the mix over the top. Use a spoon to spread this evenly. Then for the fun part: melt the chocolate and pour on top! I use white and milk chocolate to get the mosaic effect.
Put into the fridge to cool and harden, and there you go.
