When Whittard very kindly sent me* some of their Sticky Toffee Pudding White Hot Chocolate from their Halloween special editions range, I instantly knew that I wanted to make some brownies with it. When I saw the packaging of this hot chocolate I was obviously like “oh my gosh” because come on, who wouldn’t be? coming from a beauty bloggers point of view, this packaging is stunning. It fits this time of year perfectly as Halloween is soon approaching. I LOVE IT. I love the different coloured skulls, it’s very unique and just fascinating to look at. The actual packaging itself is so sturdy and well made that you can instantly tell this is a good quality product, from the packaging to the hot chocolate. You get 350g of hot chocolate, which is a lot! I feel like this would last me forever, but then and again I don’t think it will because this is one of the best tasting things I have ever tried, so I know I will be drinking it every night. When I opened this hot chocolate I was instantly delighted by the smell, it blew me away as to how delicious it smelt. It smells EXACTLY like sticky toffee pudding that I am wondering what sort of witch craft has gone into this hot chocolate haha. This hot chocolate is so thick and creamy and has such a gorgeous taste of sticky toffee pudding, I honestly think it has converted me from normal milk/dark chocolate hot chocolate to white chocolate hot chcoclates. This is the sort of hot chocolate that is perfect for those colder evenings, you are going to want to grab a mug of it, sit by the fire and grab yourself a nice book to end your evening.
( that is a lot of hot chocolate in one paragraph )
This hot chocolate is £8.00 from Whittard
– LET’S GET STARTED –
Ingredients that you will need
185g unsalted butter
2 1/2 tbsp sticky toffee pudding white hot chocolate
85g plain flour
15g cocoa powder
75g milk chocolate
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar
Equipment that you will need
Step one: Preheat the oven to 180oc and then place a medium saucepan on the hob, pour in a tiny bit of hot water and let it simmer. Keep it on a low heat
Step two: Grease inside of a reasonably sized square tin of your choice. Cut up some baking parchment that is bigger than your tin and place it in your tin. The sides should flap over the edges. You can always cut these edges if they are too big.
Step three: Get a clear glass bowl and place it on top of the saucepan making sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Chop up the milk chocolate and place it into the bowl, (putting a handful aside) add in the butter and let them melt together. Once all of the chocolate has melted take it off of the hob.
Step four: Add in the sugar to the melted chocolate and then add in the eggs. Mix together.
Step five: Then sift in the flour, cocoa powder and sticky toffee pudding hot choc into a separate bowl. After you have done this, start adding the contents from this dry batch into the melted chocolate bowl. Fold everything together until everything is combined.
Step six: Pour the batter into the tin and drop in the remaining handful of chocolate chips. Put the brownies in the oven and set a timer for 20-25 minutes. When the timer hits half way turn the tray around in the oven, just to make sure that everything will bake evenly. Once you think they are finished, they should look hardish on the top but still wobble and feel abit wet inside. Once you take them out of the oven and let them cool down they will naturally start getting a little harder as it sets.
Step seven: Pull the parchment up and take the brownie out of the tin and let it cool on a cooling wrack. Once It is fully cooled down, but the brownie up into even parts and place it on a plate. Sprinkle over some of the toffee hot chocolate and pour over a tiny bit of toffee sauce.
YOU ARE DONE!
I loved making these brownies. They were so gooey and perfect. You could really taste the sticky toffee pudding and it was so yummy. I wanted to add cocoa powder because I wanted there to still be that hot chocolate taste and I also wanted them to be a brown chocolate colour. Adding the toffee sauce on top made them perfect.
Does this hot chocolate sound like something you would like?
