These Pick Up Chocolate Brownies are filled with black and white pick up biscuits , which allows for a biscuity surprise inside each brownie square.
My Pick Up Chocolate Brownies were created as a result of me receiving a packet of the black and white variety inside my latest Degsutabox UK delivery last week. Having realised that they looked a little similar to Oreo cookies in colour,(for example, their colour and robustness), I then thought that they would probably maintain their shape while being baked inside a cake or brownie batter. Afterall, Pick up biscuits are quite robust and do not crumble or crush easily.
This Hamburger Cake is fun to make and consists of a vanilla sponge bap covered in coffee butter cream, filled with a chocolate brownie burger, chocolate spread with cheese and salad made from fondant icing.
The Great British Bake Off is back!!!! Yaaaay *does a happy dance* ! Of course this means that it also sees the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off (#GBBOBloggers2017) *does another happy dance*. Also, it sees the return of me baking lots and trying not to gain too much weight! Well, I have failed on that score already with my Hamburger Cake which I managed to bake today. However, I have already sampled a slice (a very small one!), despite my promise to myself last night that I would be back on my healthier eating today!
Sometimes I amaze myself with my bonkers baking or cooking ideas, and after receiving my latest Degustabox UK subscription box earlier this week, my initial thought was to make something using the Jim Jams (reduced sugar) chocolate spread.
After the success of my Chocolate Orange Brownies the other week, it has given me the confidence to make brownies as before whenever I tried to make them the conventional way they failed!
Now I have to admit to using popcorn rather a bit recently in my cake recipes. it is simply for two reasons :
1. I have been sent lots by various companies this last month
2. It just works!
