Squidgy Chocolate Brownies

I had never ever cooked brownies before as I thought their bobble hats would get stuck in my teeth ( you would have had to have been a brownie from the 1980s to understand that one)
So it is with the kind permission of Lurpak that their Brownie recipe is below:

These classic brownies are just what you need to satisfy your sweet tooth craving. They’ll taste even better the next day!
1. Heat the oven to 190°C /170°C Fan / Gas Mark 5 and line your 
Lurpak® brownie tin with greaseproof paper.
2. Fill a small saucepan 1⁄4 full of water, lay the chocolate and Lurpak® in a heatproof bowl 
resting on top of the saucepan, but not touching the water. Warm on a low heat, stirring occasionally, until everything has melted.
3. Whisk the eggs in a bowl until they’re pale and fluffy, but not too stiff. Add the sugar and whisk until it thickens up. Gently fold in the chocolate mixture and then sieve in the flour. Continue to fold until smooth.
4. Slowly pour the mixture into your tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. When you see the satisfying crust on top they’re done. They should be all squidgy inside too.
5. Cut into 16 squares and leave to cool in the tin.
• 200g Slightly Salted Lurpak®
• 350g 70% dark chocolate, chopped 
• 3 eggs
• 250g dark muscovado sugar

I haven't been compensated for this post , I bought it all myself. The world is a better place now I can bake brownies.

Do You Remember The Last Bedtime Story?

 Do you remember the last bedtime story perhaps you had as a child or perhaps the last story you read to your own child ?

Bed time stories are the most magical time as both a child and parent and nothing can beat it , the security and love you can feel from such a moment is amazing.Now sadly now everyone gets to experience this and they can start the magical love of books of reading with their own children or niece or nephews etc.Reading is one of the most magical experiences you can have and I so loved reading as a child.Reading for me gave me security from a hard family life I had growing up but neither can I remember the last bed time story I read to my son . Reading that last bed time story is one of those unspoken truths that no one can remember or those truths you push to the back of your mind much like the unspoken rule that no one says that Father Christmas doesn't because ehe does as no one ever says that out loud.

Bed times stories feel the mind not just during sleep but for the rest of your adult life, one story I love so as a child was Where the Wild things are
