The box of Molten Chocolate Chunk Brownies contains a 550g bag of brownie mix and some chocolate pieces. The mix consists of caster sugar, brown sugar, flour, cocoa, vanilla and raising agents. The choc chunks are milk chocolate (not compounded).
It’s a simple process to make the brownies – just combine the mix with 150g melted butter and 2 eggs. Then add the choc chunks and pour into a square cake tin. Bake for 40 minutes.
I took the brownies out of the oven after exactly 40 mins, but they were a bit uncooked in the centre. The edges were beautifully crisp, though. I should have left it in a bit longer, but I was in a rush to go out, and had to take the still warm brownies with me. Tastewise, they are extremely rich and sweet, so just a small piece will do. The box says the mix will make about 16 servings.
Is it worth the $14.95 price per box? I suppose if you don’t like measuring ingredients, then it is very convenient, as you just need to dump everything into a bowl and stir. To make a comparable slab of brownies (flour, sugar, cocoa) certainly would not cost that much, so if money is not an issue, then the final result is worth it, I think.
