Chocolate Truffle Brownies


The darker the chocolate, the richer the flavor. These brownies are best when made with chocolate that is at least 70 percent cacao, preferably of a high quality. To melt it, the chocolate is combined with butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water and then stirred until smooth and combined. After baking, the brownies are dusted with cocoa powder to resemble truffles (hence the recipe name).


240 grams dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
100 grams butter
3 eggs
135 grams brown sugar
55 grams plain flour
cocoa powder (for dusting)


1Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a small tray with greaseproof paper.
2Place the chocolate and butter in a water bath and heat until melted. Remove from water bath and set aside to cool.
3Place the eggs and the sugar in a bowl and beat until it becomes quite creamy and pale. Add the flour, mixing until smooth. Finally, mix in the melted chocolate and butter mixture and mix until creamy.
4Put the dough into the prepared tray, bake for 15 minutes.
5When cool, sprinkle with cocoa powder. Cut into squares and serve.
