Celebration Brownies

The Summer holiday is over and the schools are opened full time as of tomorrow. So in order to keep my mind calm and send M in with some sweet treats in his packed lunch, I've been baking today.

One of my favourite things to make is brownies, but sometimes with a twist. Like these celebration brownies. There is a surprise in every square.

You'll need ...
225g margarine
140g milk chocolate
450g caster sugar
110g plain flour
55g cocoa powder
5 eggs
Box of celebration sweets

To Make ...
Start with pre-heating the oven to 180 and greasing a brownie tin. I like to use the large foil trays when I'm making a big batch of brownies.

Over a pan of boiled water, melt the milk chocolate and butter in a bowl.

Remove from the heat and mix in the sugar, flour, cocoa powder and eggs. Combine until its all glossy and thick.

Pour the mixture into the tray, making sure its spread into the corners and give a little shake to make sure its levelled out.

Unwrap some of the celebration sweets and add to the tray. You can add them sporadically or you can mentally section out the slices and add a sweetie to each square. 

Press each sweetie down a little into the mix. The beauty of this is you can pic the sweeties you like best and leave out the ones you don't. A little heads up though the Milky Way kind of explodes over the square, so I tend to leave those ones out but its your call

Bake in the oven for 22-25 minutes till the top has browned. We like our brownies a little more on the gooey side so we left ours in for 22 minutes. Remember the brownie will continue to cook for a little while after its out of the oven.
