Dangerous Brownies with Raspberries and White Chocolate Chips

These babies are by far the best brownies I've ever tasted. I whipped these up in no time after reading this (couldn't resist myself in making them immediately). Alice's brownies were pretty easy to make, in fact I could make them in my sleep. Just melt a few ingredients, stir in the flour and eggs and whisk like mad...And frankly you are just an hour away (I've considered the chilling time) to the worlds best brownies (without the £10.99 price tag). I call them dangerous for a reason. They are very addictive. I have added the seasons best raspberries and a a handful of white chocolate chips to make it even more naughty and irresistible. It is a very forgiving recipe and feel free to add nuts, dark chocolate chips...anything you fancy.

For the Dangerous Brownies 
Good Quality Unsweetened Cocoa - 82 grams
Sugar - 280 grams
Cold Eggs - 2
Butter - 141 grams
Flour - 66 grams
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
Raspberries - A handful
White Chocolate chips - 50 grams
Preheat oven to 170C. Grease and line a 8X8 square tin with parchment paper. Combine the butter, sugar, cocoa and salt in a bowl and melt this over a double boiler i.e this bowl placed over a smaller pan with simmering water. Keep stirring until the butter has melted, the mixture is fairly warm when your finger is dipped and the looks grainy. Set aside to cool a bit. Once cool, stir in the vanilla and cold eggs. Whisk like mad until you have a smooth mixture. Now add the flour and whisk vigorously with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour this into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake until skewer thrust into the centre comes out slightly moist about 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool completely and refrigerate for a few hours before cutting into squares (This step ensures you get clean lines when you cut the brownies).

Verdict: After the 1 hour wait to cut them which seemed ages, I got to lay my hands on a handsome piece. Gooyey on the inside, with juicy raspberries and sweet white chocolate bits. I was in chocolate heaven. (In fact I am writing this as I bite into another chunky piece...nirvana)!
