Today is SO's last day of school. She's been feeling a lot better since yesterday, so she was back to school. Of course, she didn't want to skip her last day especially since some of her classmates will be going to another school next year and she won't see them again. I didn't know how a last day of school is in France but I wanted to somewhat mark it. I told the teacher yesterday that I would bring a chocolate cake after lunch for the kids to enjoy as their afternoon snack. So I prepared the cake this morning, well more Chocolate Brownies, to bring when I brought back SO to school after her lunch break. I'm glad I did because some of the kids gave little presents to the teacher, even a bouquet of flowers, so the cake was the cherry on top! This isn't the first time I made this Chocolate Brownies recipe. I had it final tested on our Repas des Voisins (click here), which was a huge success with the children. I decorated the brownies square with sliced strawberries then, but I thought that it would a cool idea to use Smarties this time and very kid-friendly!
In a sauce pan, melt a 200 grams chocolate bar and 160 grams of butter while whisking constantly on low heat. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. Set aside.
In a bowl, whisk 3 eggs and 150 grams white sugar well. Add 50 grams of flour. Continue to whisk well. Set aside.
Prepare your baking dish by sprinkling flour generously on it. This will prevent the brownie from sticking to the pan.
Next, add the chocolate/butter mixture to your eggs/sugar/flour mixture. Whisk well.
Pour into your baking dish.
Transfer to your 180 degrees Celsius preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
Decorate the brownies as you like. As you can see, I sprinkled it with icing sugar and SO helped me with putting the Smarties. I think it looks pretty cute! :)
