Boozy Brownie Bites

Boozy Brownie Bites

prep time: 10 minscook time: 20 minstotal time: 30 mins


375g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
175g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
100g Lindt Orange Intense chocolate
6 free-range eggs
350g caster sugar
3 tablespoons Grand Marnier
225g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
100g Lindt Orange Intense chocolate – broken into very small pieces
100g chopped walnuts
Plus some icing sugar for dusting and then decorate however you fancy


Preheat your oven to 180c/355f/ or Gas 4

Line the sides and base of a 30cm x 20cm x 5.5cm/13in x 9in x 2in baking tin with kitchen foil and lightly grease with butter.

Put the butter and chocolate into a heatproof glass bowl and put the bowl over a saucepan of lightly simmering water – take care to not let the base of the bowl touch water.

Let the butter and chocolate melt nicely – stirring from time to time.

Now out the eggs, sugar and Grand Marnier into another bowl and whisk together nicely.

When the chocolate and butter have melted, set aside and allow to cool slightly.

Now add the egg mixture and whisk to combine together.

Gradually mix in the flour and salt into the chocolate mixture.

Gently stir in the broken Orange Intense chocolate pieces and chopped walnuts – stir until they’re nicely mixed in.

Pour the mixture into the baking tin and pop it into your preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes to 28 minutes.  Remember they will continue to cook a bit whilst they are cooling.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.

To serve, allow to cool a bit before removing from the baking tin and cutting the brownies into squares. Sprinkle with a little icing sugar and decorate however you fancy.
