Long shopping lists turn you off cooking? Then, this series is just for you. All you’ll need is five ingredients to cook up delish dishes in a snap.

Start off the New Year on a sweet note with these fail-proof chocolate brownies that use just five ingredients.

Dark & Gooey Chocolate Brownies


100 g dark chocolate
175 g unsalted butter

1) Line a 12-inch square tin with butter paper or baking parchment.

2) Preheat the oven to 175-deg C.

3) Place the chocolate, broken into bits, and butter in a thick-bottomed pan and melt over a very low heat.

4) Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar. Allow to cool a little.

5) Beat the eggs and stir into the chocolate mixture.

6) Gently fold the flour into the mixture, add the nuts, if using.

7) Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 20 minutes. A toothpick immersed into the brownie should come out clean. Do not over bake.

8) Remove from the oven, allow to cool and cut into squares.

9) You should get 16 scrumptious brownies.
