As you can tell, I have been a bit over cupcakes. I was hankering for something a little bit sweet to take on a picnic at Mt. Cootha today and had an excess of Ferrero Rocher's after stocking up at a clearance sale at Target.

So, I made brownies! I used my favourite brownie recipe from
They always turn out rich, tasty, fudgy and sooo good! Definitely my go to recipe that I can adapt to suit any flavour I want to add.

They went down a treat. Made the walk down to the gold mine harder. They made me tired! But here are a couple snaps I took on the way..

Prep your chopped Ferrero Rochers and walnuts.

Heat butter, chocolate and sugar in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool slightly.

Add eggs and vanilla to chocolate mixture. Mix well. Sift flour and cocoa over chocolate mixture. Stir to combine. Mix in chopped Ferrero Rochers and walnuts.

Pour brownie mixture into pan. I have added the Fererro Rochers into the batter just before baking

Bake for 20 minutes or until just set. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, lift out. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place into an airtight container. Stand for 1 day. Cut into pieces. Serve.

  5. Oh wow - Ferrero's are my absolute favourite chocolate of all time... I could eat them until I was sick!! I make similar brownies but use chopped up Snickers Bars so you get ripples of Caramel, Nuts and Chocolate... YUM - I am definately going to have to try these!! :)

  6. That sounds delicious! Do you get much texture once baked from the rochers? :D

  7. Thanks everyone. I was quite successful with this.

    The Fererro Rocher's were quite soft before it was refrigerated, but after a night in the fridge wrapped in cling wrap, they were as if they came fresh out the wrapper.

  8. They look so good! Ferrero Rocher's are my favorite chocolate. I don't know why I haven't heard about this before!
