Method
• Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5. Grease a 20x30cm brownie tin.
• Place the butter in a saucepan and place over a low heat until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugars until well mixed.
• Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, pour the butter and sugar mix onto the eggs. Stir until well combined and smooth.
• Sieve the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture. Beat hard until smooth. Leave to cool for 10 minutes.
• Break the chocolate into chunks (as big or as small as you want - we like them chunky). Add to the mixture. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 25 minutes.
• Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Take out of the tin and transfer onto a board. Cut into triangles.
• Cut a small piece out of the base of the triangle and place half a chocolate finger in the hole. Decorate to look like a christmas tree and enjoy.
