Ferrero Rocher Brownies

Ferrero Rocher Brownies

Course Dessert

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 pound bittersweet chocolate coarsely chopped
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp flour
  • 5 large eggs at room temp
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 20 Ferrero Rocher Balls

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a 9*13 pan. You can also use a 8*8 square tin and a 5*7.

  2. Melt the butter over low heat, then pull the pan off the stove and stir in the chopped chocolate until it melts 

  3. Beat the eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla on high for 4-5 minutes until the mix becomes pale and thick. When you lift the beaters out the batter should form a wide ribbon that folds back on itself and slowly dissolves on the surface.

  4. With a light hand, fold the cooled chocolate into the eggs, followed by the flour. 

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared dish and smooth the top. 
  6. Line up your Ferrero Rocher nice and pretty.

  7. Take a little batter and cover the top of the chocolate balls to protect the chocolate from burning. 

  8. Bake until the top looks slightly cracked 25-35 minutes (depending on pan)

  9. Cool completely before cutting into squares

Recipe Notes

There is no leavening agent in this recipe so the rise of the brownies comes from beating the eggs. If you use cold eggs they will not attain the kind of volume you are looking for. If your eggs are cold then fill a bowl with hot water and let the eggs sit in it for a few minutes until they are lukewarm to touch.
