Kinder have given us every kind of joy imaginable. From the elegant bueno to the fun sized happy hippos, the creamy touch of bueno chocolate is like no other.
And it’s about time we had a solid brownie recipe that would honour this gift to mankind.
These brownies are a 9.67/10.
Am I biased because I LOVE kinder?
Am I sorry about it?
Not at all.
Without further delay, here is my new recipe that absolutely BANGS
YOU WILL NEED:
100g Kinder bar chocolate (5 bars)
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
200g caster sugar
100g plain flour
pinch of salt
5 kinder bueno bars
Kinder chocolate of choice to decorate (I used kinder eggs, happy hippos and kinder bon bons for an easter theme!)
Line a deep baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 160 degrees
Melt the kinder chocolate – you can use a microwave on short 20 second blasts but to avoid burning the chocolate, place it in a plastic bowl above hot water
Once melted, leave the melted chocolate to cool (not harden)
Mix butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy
Add the vanilla and eggs and beat
Pour in the chocolate when cool (if you pour it in while hot it will cook the eggs and you’ll get some weird breakfast brownie thing that no one wants #dontdoit)
Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder along with the pinch of salt
Fold in the flour until it is barely mixed in
Add half the mixture to the tray
Get the kinder buenos and smash them up while in packets (heart breaking I know, but trust me)
Lay the broken bars onto the brownie mix (so it’s like brownie – bueno – brownie)
Add the remaining brownie mixture on top
Put the tray in the oven for 20 minutes
After 20 minutes, add your decorating chocolate to the top then pop the tray back in the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes depending on how gooey you like them! (adding the decorating pieces once the brownie is already partially cooked stops them from burning)
Allow to cool before you cut and LIVE YOU BEST LIFE
I just can’t.
Thank you kinder 🙂
PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT IF YOU MAKE THESE!
I’d love to know your thoughts because I truly believe these are a game changer
Ooo it’s Easter! The celebration of God loving you so much that He sent His son to die for your sins so that you can have and awesome relationship with Him, perfect peace and joy and love and what better way to mark a really significant world changing event that with these delicious vanilla cupcakes?
I can’t tell if that’s sarcastic or not. I am honestly unsure what baking has to do with Easter, but hey – I love any chance to bake so I’LL TAKE IT.
These cupcakes are easy, light and fluffy and will put a smile on anyones face. Ready?
Beat the softened butter with an electric mixer until it’s white, light and fluffy
Add the sugar and repeat
Add the eggs, vanilla essence and 1 tablespoon of the flour and mix
Sieve in the rest of the flour and a pinch of salt and continue to mix
Divide the cake mix into 12 cupcake holders
Cook on 150 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pic comes out clean
If you’re making your own buttercream you can do this while the cupcakes are in the oven! Beat the butter with and electric mixer until its suuuuuuuper white and fluffy. Add in the icing sugar (a tiny bit at a times to avoid a powder explosion/sugar coated kitchen.) Add the milk and vanilla and either pipe or spoon the delicious buttercream onto the cakes once they are cool!
I went for an ombre rose icing with a mini egg to top, but you can totally style these however you’d like! If you’d like to learn how I do the ombre icing then click HERE to watch my video tutorial (coming soon, editing videos takes a while sooory). I also used some edible glitter spray to make them really POP
Are you gonna make these?!
Don’t forget to tag me if you do – @DrSaraSienna! And Happy Easter!
These banana and apple muffins are super easy, healthy, fun and most importantly delicious. A brag worthy rating of 8.84
I love to bake a large batch ( I double up on the recipe below) and pop them in the freezer. If I know I’ve got a busy day ahead, I’ll take some out to defrost the night before or microwave them in the morning for a hot delicious breakfast.
YOU WILL NEED:
1 apple – diced
1 banana – mashed
1 teaspoon cinammon
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 table spoon sunflower oil (optional)
3 table spoons of self raising flour
3 tables spoons of oats
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
Pre- heat your oven to 170 degrees and grease a muffin tray – or line up 6 muffin cases on a tray.
Put the diced apple and a teaspoon of cinnamon in a microwaveable bowl – stir so that the apples are covered in the cinnamon and add a dash of water
Heat the cinnamon covered apples in the microwave for 1 to two minutes until soft-ish. Set aside to cool
Mash the banana in a large bowl
Add in the eggs and mix em up
Fold in the sifted flour, along with the oats, salt, baking powder and vanilla essence
Fold in the cooled (ish) apple chunks
Put a couple tablespoons of mix in each muffin case and put the tray in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the delicious muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the middle of one.
I’m a firm believer in making healthy eating enjoyable. You don’t have to give up your favourite foods to eat well and Lord knows I did not sign up for a life of regret and taste bud abuse. With a few clever tweaks, you can carry on eating your favourite meals that will have you smiling all the way to the gym. (Can’t guarantee smiles on the way back from gym depending on sesh)
These high protein vanilla breakfast waffles will have you wondering why I haven’t won a Nobel peace prize. The glorious combination of ingredients while maintaining a light and fluffy texture is truly ground breaking.
Of course, to make this you will need a waffle machine! I use this one! :
This waffle machine is THE BEST! Remove-able plates make it sooo easy cleaning! (As someone who has litteraly abandoned three waffle machines in the past due to too much maintenance effort, I can’t recommend this one enough.
