Dark and White Chocolate Squares

Dark and White Chocolate Squares

If you’re a brownie fan, you’ll like these dark and white chocolate squares. They’re dense and fudgy with a nice cracked top and they taste absolutely delicious. You can also make and bake them within thirty minutes. A traybake with attitude.

Whilst I was hunting around for chocolate spice cake amongst my old recipe scraps recently, I came across one I had written down at least 15 years ago. But I’d never made it. Until now that is.

Dark and White Chocolate Squares

Because of this serendipitous find, I actually had something in mind to take with us when we were unexpectedly invited to a BBQ at fairly short notice. The recipe for dark and white chocolate squares is not only an easy one, but it’s also designed to be served as squares. So they’re especially convenient for eating outdoors.

As long as you have both white and dark chocolate in the house, you should be good to go for this recipe. It’s pretty much all store cupboard ingredients. You do need eggs and butter, but if you’re a baker like me, you’ll most likely have them in stock.

The original recipe states that the batter needs to cook for thirty minutes. But I didn’t want a cake, I wanted something that was more akin to a brownie. So I baked mine for only twenty minutes. And my goodness, the result was truly delicious. Those squares turned out just like brownies in fact. They were dense and fudgy with a nice cracked top.

If you like sweet, as I unfortunately do, I’m pretty certain you’ll love these almost brownies. They went down a storm at the BBQ anyway. So next time you need to bake a sweet treat in a hurry, why not try this recipe?
