National Have A Brownie Day- Crunchie Brownies

As I type this, it is Monday 21st February. This post has been edited several times and sat in draft form for nine days now. I honestly don’t know how bloggers with other jobs manage to fit in all their writing time. Last Sunday I was busy with Valentine’s Day baking orders. Then last week passed by a blur. I tried writing this post on my iPad app while I was in the hairdressers waiting for my colour to take. But the WiFi was so dodgy, it wouldn’t save what I’d typed. The same happened on a train to London on Saturday morning. All my work lost. It’s been one of those weeks! Now, it is half term here in North Yorkshire and it’s time for catching up as Storm Franklin whistles around the back of my house.

My plan had been to bake some Thank Crunchie It’s Friday Brownies on Friday 11th February. It was National Have A Brownie Day according to My Legoman and his National Foodie Days Of Calendar. It definitely was a Thank God It’s Friday day on that day and I can honestly say so was last Friday, the 18th. Instead, the brownies were made on the Saturday. This worked out better as I had more time to photograph and video the step by step process for an Instagram reel.

All the ingredients needed to bake Crunchie Brownies.
I absolutely adore Crunchies! I used about 6 of the multipack ones in my brownies as they are smaller than the individual ones. They were chopped up into large pieces.

I used Jane’s Patisserie’s recipe to make the Crunchie Brownies. I wasn’t sure if I was meant to freeze the Crunchie bars first. I usually freeze soft centred chocolates before baking, such as Rolos or Mars Bars so that they don’t completely melt into the mixture when in the oven.

Jane’s recipe can be found here:

As with all brownies, you have to take care to get the cooking time right. Today I slightly under baked these but letting them cool completely in the fridge helped them stay fudgy.

Ready to go in the oven.
And out of the oven!

What flavour Brownies do you like? Do let me know in the comments below!

I cut the brownies up into twelve squares and then put them back in the fridge to completely cool down.
Perfect with a cup of coffee or as a dessert.
It was quite late in the day by the time I had chance to take a photo. Hence the rushed poor quality.

I think my overall favourites just have to be some I made with some leftover Celebrations chocolates (minus the Bounty Bars as not everyone likes them!) It would be a guess to see which chocolate or chocolates you got in each piece.

The Celebrations brownies I made were definitely my overall favourite.

Happy Baking!

Love Sam xx
