My MIL often make these - she calls them Brownies, which in all honesty they are not - but I have no idea what their correct name is. But let's just call the Marie biscuit chocolate squares - one of the few recipes I know by heart. I made these for the church's bake sale yesterday and they were apparently sold out. Addictive and great with ice cream for desert too.
1kg Icing sugar
250 ml good quality cacao
2 packets of Marie biscuits, broken into small bits.
Melt butter and remove from heat.
Stir in icing sugar and cacao until well mixed.
Beat the two egss together and add to the mix - mix well.
Add Marie biscuits. Mix very well
Pour into an over tray and let is cool down completely before you cut squares. They keep well in a airtight container but also freeze very well.
You will see that you can easily half the recipe but honestly it serves no purpose as you soon find yourself making another batch. Also the taste equals the cocoa taste.
So do you have an "off by heart" cookie recipe? Please share.
