Recipe: Rolo Brownies

Rolo Brownies from Penne For Your Thoughts

Sometimes a very naughty treat is required. This weekend was one of those of those times.

Friends came over for a very exciting evening of tapas and flight booking for our big Route 66 trip 
next year and to celebrate we tucked into these gooey, fudgy, caramel packed, brownies. Just don't ask me to work out the calorie content, I'm sure it's better off not knowing. 

Rolo Brownies

It took all of my willpower not to eat the brownies whilst they were cooling, and I need to stress that is the most part to make sure you get the fudgy texture. Make sure that you cool them completely in the tin before slicing up otherwise they won't hold their shape and will crumble into a big mess. It's worth the wait, I promise! 

My basis for this recipe has been taken from BBC Good Food, you can find the recipe here, but adding Rolos really is a way to step these treats up to the next level.

Rolo Brownies from Penne For Your Thoughts

Makes 12-16 brownies 

185g unsalted butter, softened
170g dark chocolate
80g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
3 large eggs
200g caster sugar
4 tubes (52g) of Rolo


1. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a bain-marie until smooth and velvety. Put to one side to cool slightly.

2. Preheat the oven to 160c and grease and line a 20cm square cake tin.

3. Beat together the eggs and the sugar until thick, creamy and frothy. This can take quite a while so don't lose patience!

4. Pour the melted chocolate into the egg/sugar mixture and gently fold together until well combined. Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder and gently fold this in to the mixture too until it looks fudgy.

5. Holding back one tube of Rolo, add the three other packets to the mixture and give a final couple of stirs. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and level out.

6. Place the remaining Rolos on top of the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes until it has a shiny top and is starting to crack on the top. Take out and leave to cool completely in the tin before cutting up.
