My 'Little Devil' Brownies

Now here comes a marmite moment.

You're either going to sit there spitting at the screen cursing my next post to high hell for ruining your diet and resolutions...
Or you might even start jumping up and down like a lunatic with glee having found the holy grail.
Obviously these are just extreme (and quite frankly scary) reactions, but I'm hoping that this next post will actually have most people's mouths watering and craving these little devils.

These are my own little invention. I've given them to name 'Little Devils'.
They are 100% not innocent, devilish and jam packed with flavour.
Imagine molten chocolate, cookies and cream biscuits, heavenly chocolate chunks and some cheeky pecans to give an extra crunch. They are so evil and so devilish that they will trick you into believing that you're in heaven.

Naughty, moreish and addictive.
These Little Devils might just lead your diet astray...but you won't regret it.

To make your own, you will need:
- 275g butter, softened
- 375g caster sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 75g cocoa powder
- 100g self raising flour
- 200g milk/plain/dark/white chocolate- (I used the classic milk)
- 2 packets of Oreo cookies
- 100g pecans or other nuts

Line your baking tray with parchment and preheat your oven to 180C (or 170C fan) heat.

Weigh out your flour, sugar, cocoa powder, butter and pop into a large mixing bowl.

Break up your eggs, add them to your mixing bowl and cream it all up with a mixer/spoon.

This is my standard brownie mix. If you fancy being a bit adventurous, try adding different sorts of chocolate, nuts, biscuits... What ever floats your boat! One of my favourite combinations is broken up Terry's chocolate orange, soooo additively good!

Next roughly crush up one packet of Oreos into fragments. You don't want to crumble them as you need to get a good crunch in your brownie bite!

Chop up your 200g of chocolate into little chunks. Add this, the Oreos and the pecans to your batter and mix with a wooden spoon.

It's safe to say that Kirsty and I couldn't resist for long...

With half of our batter now eaten (no regrets there...), scrape the mix into the tin and spread evenly with a spatula.
Break up/half your other packet of Oreos. Gently push them randomly into the top of your batter.

Pop all of this into the oven for in total 40 minutes. I usually find that I have to take it out after 30 minutes, cover with tin foil and pop it back in to help stop the top burning.

Let them cool down for 10 minutes or so before lifting them out of the tin with the sides of the baking parchment. Slice them up into some big, chunky slabs. Bring your friends round whilst they are still warm and just devour!

So naughty... but quite frankly, necessary!

And the verdict....? "Dank"
Everyone needs a devilish side...
