  • 100g 70% cocoa dark chocolate
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 150g butter
  • 220g sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 scraped vanilla bean
  • 100g plain flour
  • 75g semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 100g single cream
  • 115g semi-sweet dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 175°C.

Melt the chocolate, butter and cocoa powder in a bowl over simmering water until smooth. Stir in sugar, take off heat and cool a few minutes. Whisk eggs and vanilla together and stir into chocolate mixture. Add flour and chocolate chips and fold through until just combined.

Pour brownie batter into a greased mini cupcake tin, filling three-quarters full. Bake 8 minutes and cool in tin. Brownie is cooked when the edges are drying and a skewer comes out with very moist crumbs.

For the glaze, heat the cream until just boiling. Pour cream over the semi-sweet dark chocolate chips and rest one minute. Stir gently until smooth. Dip each cake into the glaze, allow excess to run off, then sit right way up. Set a sugar flower on top and allow to set. Makes 4 dozen.
