Oh god, even looking at these pictures is making me drool a bit. This recipe post about Marbleized Chocolate Brownies is going to be a hard one to write.
These chocolate brownies are great all year round but the marbleized chocolate icing is very summery to me, I’m loving the effect and it is very easy to achieve. I think I over mixed a teeny bit, but everything is a learning curve and I’m still very happy with how it looked. And how it tasted.. oh dear, so good.

Baking Instructions: Marbleized Chocolate Brownies
- Preheat oven to 160°C.
- Use parchment paper and butter to grease a baking tray.
- In a large bowl mix together the melted butter, cocoa and sugar until fully combined.
- Mix in eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition.
- Add vanilla and mix.
- Gently mix in the 96g of flour, salt and baking soda until it is just combined (be careful you do not over mix).
- In a separate bowl mix remaining 1 tablespoon of flour with chocolate chips and then fold into brownie batter.
- Spread the batter in the prepared baking tray
- Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until set.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before adding melted chocolate and decorations.
- Melt dark and white chocolate separately.
- Pour dark chocolate over brownies and gently spread.
- Using a spoon, drop approximately a tablespoon of the white chocolate on top of the dark chocolate. Use a knife to gently swirl the two chocolates together, being careful not to over mix (a bit like I did)
- Once you are happy with the placement and amount of white swirls, take the remaining white chocolate ad add red food colouring, 1-2 drops at a time, until you get your desired shade of pink. Then repeat the same above process.
- Whilst the chocolate is still melted drop your decorations on top.
And they were so tasty. The day I baked it my Sister was round with her kids and honest to God they spent the whole time hovering. I could barely take any pictures before they snatched it off me to eat. Whilst it is delicious (but messy) to eat while the chocolate is still melted I preferred it once the chocolate was set. So tasty!
