Recipes Seasonal



One of my husbands favourite things that I bake are my brownies so I thought that since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I’d give them a love theme! These are great all year round and can be perfect for any occasion depending on how you decorate them!

I know I’ve been posting a lot of recipes lately, and I promise I’m not turning into a food blog! We just got a new oven that actually cooks food evenly so I can finally share all of the recipes that I love!



  • 200g of dark cooking chocolate
  • 250g of butter (chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups of brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • ⅓ cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 ¼ cups of plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder


  • 55g butter (soft)
  • ¼ cup of cocoa powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon of vanilla
  • ⅛ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of icing sugar

Plus some sprinkles to decorate


  1. Preheat oven to 160℃ and line a deep baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate over a medium heat on the stove. Keep and eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  3. Combine the brown sugar and and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer.
  4. Once the chocolate and butter mix has cooled a little, add it to the large bowl and mix.
  5. Add cocoa powder, flour and baking powder.
  6. Pour evenly in your baking tray and bake for about 45-50 minutes.

While your brownies are cooking you can make your frosting. Add all frosting ingredients to a bowl and mix together.

Once your brownies have cooled down you can ice them, decorate with your sprinkles! These so loved in our house so I hope that if you do try out this recipe, you love it!

    I have misplaced my own favourite brownie recipe so I shall try these. I have never made frosted brownies before though, not sure my teenage son will accept frosted ones! He is a bit fussy, so it could be more for me! #KCACOLS
