These chocolate brownies are squidgy, gooey and delicious. My kids loved making them for their birthday party. We were having a car theme so the addition of some M&Ms made them into great traffic lights.

The Brownie recipe makes 32, using 2 cake tins but you could easily half the recipe.

Time: 45 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
400g plain chocolate
375g unsalted butter
30g cocoa powder
6 large eggs
500g golden caster sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
225g plain flour
M&Ms in red, orange and green

Method
Melt the chocolate and cubed butter over a very low heat. Do not allow to boil. My eldest enjoyed breaking up the chocolate and cubing the butter.
Meanwhile, gently beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract, trying not to get much air in.

Once the chocolate and butter have fully melted, add to the sugar and eggs. I recommend using a large mixing bowl.
Once combined, stir in the flour a little at a time.

Divide the mixture between 2 greased 20cm square baking tins.
Bake in a pre heated fan oven at 160c for 30mins.

It's a good idea to check how they're doing after 15/20 minutes as some ovens seem to cook faster than others. Test by giving the tin a gentle shake. If the mixture wobbles it's not quite ready.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 5 mins then transfer to a rack.
Once cool, slice into rectangles.

Melt a little chocolate and use to stick on the M&Ms. Red, amber and green to make traffic lights.
