What an invention!


  •  125g unsalted butter, chopped

  •  400g dark chocolate, chopped

  •  155g (3/4 cup) caster sugar

  •  3 eggs

  •  75g (1/2 cup) plain flour, sifted

  •  1/4 teaspoon mixed spice

  •  3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  •  125g cream cheese, at room temperature

  •  11/2 tablespoons icing sugar

  •  2 tsp Greek-style yoghurt

  •  150g tub Dr Oetker Easy Choc White melted chocolate


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease 9 holes of an 80ml (1/3 cup) muffin pan. Line the bases with baking paper.

Step 2

Place the butter and 200g chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. Stir in the sugar until well combined. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

Step 3

Stir in flour, mixed spice and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Spoon mixture into prepared holes. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Set aside to cool.

Step 4

Beat cream cheese, icing sugar and remaining cinnamon in a bowl until smooth. Stir in yoghurt.

Step 5

Use a small sharp knife to cut out a shallow indent in the top of each brownie. Discard. Spoon cream cheese mixture into indents, smoothing the top. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

Step 6

Microwave remaining chocolate on High, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. Dip tops of brownies in chocolate. Set aside on a wire rack for 15 minutes.

Step 7

Heat the Easy Choc following packet directions until melted. Cool slightly. Spoon into a saleable plastic bag and snip off the corner. Squeeze onto the brownies to form crosses. Store the brownies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
