Lesson 7 - Easy Festive Brownies

So we were getting closer to Christmas and I figured we should give the Kinder Teachers (who are Mr Moo's taste testers) something festive to taste before the end of the year approcahes, so I found this recipe in the Cole's brochure and decided to try it, being a brownie fan from way back!
It is basically a chocolate brownies recipe with cranberries, pistachios and white chocolate added to the mix to add the "festive" component.
Here is the recipe, I must admit they were a little dry for my liking of brownies but others raved about them so hey....decide for yourself!


125g Butter
200g dark cooking chocolate
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 cup white chocolate bits
2/3 cup craisins (dried cranberries)
2/3 cup shelled pistachios, roasted

  • Preheat oven to 180 C, grease and line the sides of a 19cm square pan
  • Melt butter, dark chocolate and sugar in a saucepan until melted. Cool for 10 minutes
  • Stir in eggs, flour, mix well
  • Add white chocolate, craisins, and pistachios
  • Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until form to touch.
  • Allow to cool in the pan, turn out and cut into squares

Thank you thank you! I saw an ad on TV that had these in it, and I missed the last part so I didn't know where to get the recipe from! I've been searching Woolies and Coles all afternoon! Now I know!! Thanks so much!
