So I have been telling you about this series I am going to do each Thursday and they are all going to be about homemade Christmas gifts which will really impress your friends and family. I thought I wouldn't go into anything which is too Christmassy because I know it is still October and most of you don't want to think about Christmas at all. So I want to share with you my white chocolate chunk brownies which are so good and can obviously be made all year around but they are great gifts for people you work with or for friends.

I love baking brownies and this dark chocolate brownie recipe with surprise white chocolate chunks are amazing for this time of year. I love to give these as gifts around the holidays because who wouldn't want to indulge their sweet tooth with a warm chocolate brownie and a hot chocolate. These are so moist and are definitely a treat every now and again ...

Serves: 12 | Prep Time: 10-15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 to 20 minutes
You will need ...

65g Plain Flour
150g Unsalted Butter
250g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
100g Cocoa Powder
Pinch of Salt
1 Bar of Milk or Dark Chocolate
White Chocolate Chips or 1 bag
of giant White Chocolate Buttons

Method ...
First of all you want to pre-heat the over to 180c.
Then add the unsalted butter into a dish (which is microwavable) and heat for 30 seconds and then stir, and repeat until the butter is fully melted.
Stir in all of the sugar until the butter and sugar are incorporated, but please remember that the dish will be really hot!!! Then stir in the vanilla and cocoa powder, and once it has all combined, then you can add in one egg at a time while mixing until it is fully incorporated. Try not to over-mix so stop stirring as soon as it has all incorporated.
In another dish, break the bar of either milk or dark chocolate (depending on which you like!!) and break into chunks. You can either melt the chocolate in the bowl over a saucepan with boiling water or melt it in the microwave, but this can also get very hot so please be careful!!! Leave the chocolate to just cool slightly but only for a minute otherwise it will start to set and then add the chocolate to the mixture and stir until it is fully mixed.
Sieve in the plain flour and baking powder and then add a pinch of salt and mix until fully combined.
The final step is to add either your white chocolate chips or you white chocolate giant buttons (if you can't find either of these, then just get a bar of white chocolate and chop into bitesize chunks) and stir into the mixture.
Then transfer the mixture into a lined or greased pan and place it in the oven for roughly 15 to 20 minutes or until the top of the brownie is shiny. Then transfer your brownies onto a wire rack to cool down or let it cool down in the pan before you chop into squares.
Finally dust with icing sugar and enjoy!!!
If you are giving these as Christmas presents then why not wrap them up in white greaseproof paper and tie with a ribbon or a piece of lace to make them look really pretty.
