  • 100g unsalted butter, softened
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 75g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 4 tbsp mixed white and milk chocolate chips
  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 75g full-fat soft cheese


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20cm square brownie tin with baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk, then add the eggs one by one. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder, and add the milk. Mix everything together, then stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon into the tin and level the top.

  2. Bake for 30 mins, or until the top is set, then cool completely. To make the topping, melt the milk chocolate, cool a little, then mix it with the soft cheese. Spread over the cooled brownies and cut into small squares – these are very rich.
