Death by Chocolate Platter: featuring ‘spiced’ death-by-chocolate brownies

This simply wicked Death by Chocolate Platter, featuring ‘spiced’ death-by-chocolate brownies, is enough to send you to heaven.


  • 250 g unsalted butter
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 4 large eggs
  • 360g castor sugar
  • 65g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5g ras el hanout or vanilla paste
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 100g chocolate chips/roasted nuts


Melt butter and dark chocolate together. You will need to break the chocolate into pieces, of course, to help it melt easier.

Once melted stir through until smooth and allow to cool slightly. Beat eggs and castor sugar together until pale and fluffy.

Sift plain flour, baking powder, ras el hanout or vanilla paste, and cocoa powder together. Mix to make a smooth batter and add chocolate chips or roasted nuts of your choice.

Spoon into a greased baking sheet and then bake in a moderate oven at 180C° for 20 to 25 minutes until firm on the outside but still very gooey on the inside. Do not be tempted to overcook these – they are best when extremely gooey.
