My husband LOVES Kit Kats. I filled his Christmas stocking with a variety of them and he demolished them all very, very quickly. So when I came across a recipe for Kit Kat brownies and mentioned it to him, he immediately asked if I was planning to make them soon.
I found the original recipe here, but decided to use my favourite brownie recipe instead. It’s the Pandoro American fudge brownie recipe (Pandoro being a bakery here in NZ). I’ve adapted the recipe, firstly because the quantites of the original are huge (suitable for a bakery!), and secondly because I added the Kit Kats.
The final product was both crispy and fudgy and just to be really decadent, I sliced the edges off, crumbled them up and mixed them with vanilla ice cream. Yummy!
Kit Kat brownies
2/3 C cocoa
1 3/4 C sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
2/3 C flour
1/3 tsp baking powder
1 C chocolate chips
6 x 45g Kit Kat bars
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
Melt the butter completely. Pour onto cocoa in mixer and combine. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix on high speed until colour lightens slightly (approximately 5 minutes).
Add flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
Pour 2/3 of the mixture into a lined tin and layer the Kit Kats on top.
Then pour the rest of the batter on top.
Spread evenly and then bake for 50-60 minutes.
It should crack slightly around the edges but still be soft to the touch. Allow to cool before cutting.
Store in an airtight container.
