Who doesn't love a good brownie? Well these are an exceptionally good brownie. Totally gooey centred but if you don't love the real gooey centre, just bake for *5-8 minutes longer.
100g dark chocolate (minimum 50% cocoa solids), chopped
25g milk chocolate, chopped
115g unsalted butter, diced
250g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
3 large eggs, beaten

50g self-raising flour
30g cocoa powder
1 Tbsp sprinkles (I used these from Shire Bakery)

You will also need a 20cm (8 inch) square baking tin, greased and lined with baking parchment
Preheat the oven to 170ºC/325ºF/gas mark 3.
Combine the dark and 25g of milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Add the butter and melt together carefully in a microwave in 20 second bursts or over a pan of simmering water. Stir until smooth and combined and leave to cool slightly.

Sift both of the flours and cocoa powder into the bowl and mix until smooth. spoon into the prepared tin. Spread level with a palette knife and bake on the middle shelf of the preheated oven for *25 minutes.
