Brownies
  1. 250g butter, diced
  2. 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  3. 200g brown sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  5. 4 eggs
  6. 210g self raising flour, sifted
  7. 40g cocoa powder, sifted
  8. 100g soft licorice, diced (use more or if desired)
Topping (optional)
  1. 50g soft licorice, diced
  2. Melted white chocolate to drizzle over the top, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
  2. Line a lamington tin with baking paper.
  3. Blitz butter and chocolate for 5-10 sec on speed 7.
  4. Melt at 60 degrees on speed 2 for 4-5 mins or until melted.
  5. Add sugar and vanilla. Mix on speed 4 until just combined.
  6. Add eggs one at a time through the hole in the lid.
  7. Add flour, licorice and cocoa powder. Blitz on speed 4 until combined.
  8. Pour mixture into prepared tin.
  9. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Do not over bake this. You want a nice fudgey soft brownie. The one shown was over baked. Still tasty but not fudgey and gooey like it should be.
  10. Once cake is done, remove from the oven. Let cool for 5 minutes then pop onto a cooling rack.
  11. Place licorice on top once cooled. Place melted white chocolate into a ziplock bag. Snip the corner and drizzle over the brownie. Alternatively use a piping bag with fine tip.
  12. Leave to set.
