These Kinder brownies are filled with chocolate, butter, and sugar to make them deliciously fudgy and moreish. Adding a layer of Kinder chocolate bars adds a white chocolate hazelnut flavour which takes these to the next level.
What makes these Kinder brownies so good?
There are a whole list of reasons why these brownies are worth making:
- the recipe uses melted chocolate and cocoa powder for a rich, intense chocolate flavour
- it comes together in only two bowls, so is really quick and easy to make
- whisking the eggs makes a delicious crispy brownie topping
- there is a whole layer of Kinder bars in the middle, and more Kinder bars on top
FOR THE CRISPY BROWNIE TOPPING
The signature crispy topping is something that makes these brownies so moreish.
The key to getting the perfect brownie topping is what we do with the eggs.
In a separate bowl, whisk the caster sugar and eggs until they’re really fluffy and pale. This creates a meringue-like mixture which, when cooks, creates that perfect topping.
FOR THE BROWNIE BASE
The brownie batter starts with melting chocolate and butter together for a rich, chocolate flavour from the very start.
Then you gently mix this chocolate/butter mixture with the whisked eggs.
Next, mix in the plain flour and cocoa powder. This recipe doesn’t use any raising agents because you want to keep the dense fudginess in this recipe.
It might seem like a lot of cocoa powder, but can you ever really have too much chocolate flavour? The melted chocolate create the rich chocolate foundation and the cocoa powder adds another dimension of chocolate flavour.
To make these Kinder brownies, you take 16 mini Kinder bars (I bought mine from Morrisons) and just layer them right in the middle of the brownie batter. They keep their shape when they cook so you get a lovely creamy white chocolate hazelnut layer. These almost taste like Kinder Beuno brownies!
BAKING THE KINDER BROWNIES
Pour the brownie batter into a 8-inch square cake tin which is lined and greased. 8-inch is the best size tin for these brownies as it bakes in a reasonable time and the brownies themselves are the perfect thickness.
The recipe states to bake these for 25-30 mins, but use your judgement here. You definitely want the brownies to have a slight wobble in the centre when you take them out of the oven, because they're firm up slightly as they cool down to room temperature.
If you prefer more of a fudgy brownie, bake them for 25 mins. If you prefer them more cakey, keep them in the oven for about 30 mins.
Slicing the brownies
Try and wait for them to cool to room temperature before you cut them, otherwise the Kinder bars will melt everywhere! You can just leave them in the tin to cool, or pop it all in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.
