Mango Chocolate Brownie and Strawberry Chocolate Brownie



Have you ever heard of Mango Chocolate or Strawberry Chocolate Brownies?  I, for one, never heard of it.  So, this idea of mine came about as I was kinda itching to make brownies.  You can call it 'spur-of-the-moment-baking itch'!

I wanted to make a different type of brownie with new flavors other than the usual dark chocolate ones.  So out comes my recipe books on brownies.  After browsing through, I decided to try out something new out of my own.  Then I remembered that I have these blocks of flavored chocolates sitting in my refrigerator and before they are totally forgotten, I'd better try at making brownies out of them.  So here are my Mango and Strawberry Chocolate Brownies which you can't get in any bakery except making them your own or stop by my house..lol.  The result?  Amazingly good!  Hubby and kids enjoy them very much and I think my in-laws, my colleagues (yes, friends, you'll get some too tomorrow!) and my neighbor will undoubtedly enjoy them too!
Mango Chocolate Brownie



Strawberry Chocolate Brownie
Here's how it's made.

250g Mango or Strawberry flavored chocolate blocks (you can use any other flavored chocolate ie orange, lemon that you may find near your baking ingredient store)
100g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar (you don't need much as the flavored chocolates are usually quite sweet)
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

1. Pre-heat oven to 180dC, line baking pan with parchment paper.
2. On a double boiler, melt the flavored chocolate with the butter.  Take off heat and stir in the sugar.  Whisk  to mix well.
3. Add eggs one at a time and whisk till combine and add vanilla.
4. Add in the flour in 2 batches and mix well.
5. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 mins or until done.

The texture of this brownie is gooey in the inside but crispy at the top.  Love it.  I shall add this recipe to my special book where I record recipes that I created for a 'hand-me-down' to my kids (hopefully they'll take after me at baking and cooking).. :)





Like? Bake it! Kids and adults will love these.

    1. Aww it's a pity you don't have the flavored choc blocks there. Maybe you could substitute by using white chocolate and instead of adding vanilla extract, you could use the fruit essence. Maybe 1/2 tsp of the fruit of your choice essence is enough. :)

Can have some gula melaka ice- kacang to go with or not? Craving for some since I tasted it at Malacca!!! LOL Have a nice day!
