Well it’s here at last the brand new season of Game Of Thrones!! Season 7 – Episode 1 debuts tonight . Yes it’s definitely going to be a late one BUT so worth it.
My daughter Amy & I have been binge watching S1-6 over the past month in preparation for tonight’s premier which is on at 2AM our time. We’re #teamdani all the way.
A very delicious mid-night feast is on the cards so I’ll be baking the chocolate goodies and our Amy is making her special Game of Throne’s cocktail. On the menu tonight is Home-made Pizza, Chocolate Popcorn Cupcakes ( you can find that Recipe HERE) and Chocolate Popcorn Brownies, which brings me back to my post.
I made these really delicious Bourbon-Biscuit Brownies a few weeks ago. They were an experiment that work out really well. I had no chocolate chips to put in my usual brownies but what I did have was a packet of chocolate bourbon-biscuits which I crumbled up and chucked into the batter
Bourbon Biscuits are hugely popular in this part of the world, they’re a typically British biscuit right up there with the beloved custard cream. In our house the Bourbon-Biscuit is the king and you will always find a packet in the biscuit tin.
This is a very simple brownie recipe, no mixer required just a wooden spoon!
I crumble up 1/2 the biscuits and stir them into the brownie batter. The other half – I leave whole and press into the top of the batter before it goes into the oven. The biscuits make the chocolate brownie even more chocolaty and also lend a little biscuit crunch to the rich squidgy brownie. It’s a win-win situation.
