Chilli Peanut Fridge Brownies
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Whisk all the eggs in your biggest mixing bowl and break in the dark chocolate, put to the side.
On a medium heat, melt all the butter in a large saucepan (watch closely to make sure the butter doesn’t start to brown). Once the butter is melted add the caster sugar, stirring frequently so the sugar doesn’t stick to the pan. Remove from the heat when you have a nice, thick, golden consistency.
Then, pour the butter into the egg and chocolate mix. Stir consistently until the chocolate has melted and you have a deliciously rich batter.
Next, sieve in your flour and cocoa powder, and mix until you get a smooth texture.
Then add your chilli flakes and peanuts and give it a final stir.
Now, time to line your baking tin (our tin dimensions were 28 x 18 x 18cm). Take your greaseproof paper and scrunch it up then flatten it out across your tin.
Pour your mixture in and bang on the kitchen surface to bring any air bubbles to the top. Then, using the back of a spoon even out the brownie surface and sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 25 mins until the brownies develop a very thin crust (the mixture will still have a slight wobble to it).
Transfer the brownies onto a cooling rack and leave to reduce to room temperature and begin to solidify. Chill in the fridge overnight.
Once your brownies have chilled you’re ready to serve. We recommend serving with a generous handful of lime zest and chilli flakes for the ultimate flavour kick. Then, tuck in!
