Continuing my chocolate bar recipe series, today we’re using the classic Cadbury’s Double Decker. First introduced in 1976, its name derives from the double-decker bus. *Fact* However, there won’t be any buses needed for this tasty treat. I’ve used Cadbury’s Bournville dark chocolate and cocoa powder to give these brownies a truly indulgent feel.

The brownies are soft and squidgy, gooey and gorgeous and the addition of melty nougat and crunchy crispies makes this recipe one of my favourite decadent delights.

Preheat your own to 180C. Grease a 10 x 8 baking tin with cake release. I’m using a Wilton one available from Lakeland.


Optional – Line your tin with baking paper. You don’t have to do this but I do when making brownies to make sure they don’t stick.


Melt your butter and dark chocolate in a glass bowl over some boiling water. Alternatively, you can do this in the microwave at 1 minute bursts, stirring in between.


Keep stirring until it has melted.


When it is all melted and lovely and smooth, take the bowl out of the saucepan and leave to cool.


Meanwhile, chop up your Double Decker bars into a bowl and pop in the fridge to chill.


Next, whisk your brown and caster sugar and eggs until the mix has doubled in size.


Once doubled, add in the melted butter and chocolate.


Then fold in your cocoa powder and plain flour. Be careful not to knock all the air out.


Finally, add in ¾ of your chilled Double Decker pieces.


Pour into your baking tin and bake at 180C for 10 minutes.


After 10 minutes, carefully take your tin out of the oven and press in the last ¼ of your Double Decker pieces. Bake for a further 10 minutes. Then leave to cool before cutting into squares.
