Ferrero Rocher Brownie - Lighter Version





 


Encountered an issue yesterday that making me so upset, need to do some read up to calm myself down. What else can be said, 人在做天在看!

Well better back to my bake before getting too emotional again lol. I have bookmarked 2 ferrero rocher brownie recipes when I spotted in my favourite blogs, but I didn't bake it immediately as I do not have ferrero rocher with me. Not willing yet to part my $ to buy as I know I will sure receive this as gift during CNY. And true enough, I got 2 big boxes and there is no way we can finish by eating it, so is a good opportunity to make good use for baking.
 
 I halved the recipe as I was baking 2 recipes at one go :D.

Recipe adapted from Bisousatoi with modification.

Ingredients :
60g dark chocolate; coarsely chopped - I used 55% 
50g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
55g sugar
2 small eggs (about 51g with shell)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla powder
1/8 tsp salt
55g plain flour
6 Ferrero Rocher candies, sliced in half


Methods :
1. Preheat oven to 165C. Line an 8×3.5" x 3" inch baking pan with baking paper.
2.
Melt chocolate and butter in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of barely simmering water. Stir gently and constantly until smooth. 
3.Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.
4. Spread 1/2 the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of Ferrero Rocher candies and cover with remaining 1/2 of brownie batter. 

5. Bake for 30 minutes; do not over bake.
6. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.



Verdict?
This brownie is rich and chocolatey, gooey and chewy. I like to heat up the brownie a bit before eating, or leave the brownie almost to room temperature. Imagine you bite into the gooey and chewy brownie, break the hazelnut wafer shell the chocolate centre is ever so slightly melted., wow that is heavenly. I had baked this a few times and always get good reviews.

This recipe is slightly lighter than the other recipe that I had baked, which will share with you next time. There are 2 groups of fans, votes are equally, 1/2 prefer this version which they found the other recipe is too rich for them. For kids, I will think they will more suitable for this recipe cos for the rich version, I scare might be too heaty for them lol.

  14. Jess, life is not easy for anyone of us. Anything may happen either you like it or not. So, just take it easy. However, I think the chocolate brownie should make your day a little easier.
    Enjoy & have a lovely weekend.
    Blessings, Kristy

  17. 哈哈哈。。。说得很对,好像SG的亲朋戚友们都爱在新年时送FR,我家也是这样的,有时候真的多到怕咧。现在可好了,明年当我收到FR时就可以派上用场了。谢谢你的分享哦·~

    不要不开心了,人生嘛就是这样的,往往都会事与愿违的。保持自己心情愉快最重要,其他人与事只不过是过眼云烟而已。加油哦,朋友!!

  19. Jess,
    When things happen to me, I always tell myself 'everything happen ,happen for the good'
    If we think this way ,we feel better and we know we are doing the right thing.
