Bourbon Biscuit Chocolate Brownies

Bourbon Biscuit Chocolate Brownies

Posted 2015-02-05 by Lindsay Lawfollow
After a birthday party I was left with lots of packets of unused biscuits that we'd forgotten to put out. Although Bourbons are lovely with a hot drink or a glass of milk, I had so many I needed to think of another way to use them up. The solution? A traditional brownie mix with the crushed Bourbon biscuits added for extra crunch. It's a delicious fusion of British and American cuisine.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

10 Bourbon biscuits (or any chocolate sandwich biscuit e.g. Tim Tams)
150g dark chocolate
130g butter
200g Muscovado sugar
130g plain flour
2 eggs

  • Preheat the oven to 170 Celsius, 150 Celsius for a fan oven.
  • Grease a baking tray by brushing on a mild vegetable oil.
  • Put the biscuits in a sealable plastic bag and crush them with the end of a rolling pin. Put them aside until later. You could also crush them in a blender using a gentle pulse setting (if you use continuous you will just get a fine powder rather than chunks).

  • Break the chocolate into small chunks and put it in a large microwaveable bowl. Cook on full power, stopping the microwave regularly to stir and check the progress of the melting. When it's about half-melted, add the butter and continue to cook. Again, check and stir regularly to avoid burning. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.

  • When the chocolate and butter have melted stir in the Muscovado sugar. You could also use a soft light brown sugar, but I think the Muscovado gives a richer flavour.
  • Using a sieve, sift in the flour and stir in to the mixture.

  • Crack the eggs into a cup and whisk them, then add to the mixture and stir them through too.
  • Finally, tip in the biscuits and gently stir them through the mixture.

  • Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the top is dry and flaky, but still soft when you press it. Leave to cool a little and then cut into squares.
