I am admittedly not the best baker ever, I try, but it usually fails; so I was presently surprised to find a recipe that not only worked, but was fairly simple, and tasted great! Please note, this is defiantly not my recipe, I am not a chef, I am just a vegan trying to make yummy snacks!
We have a large oven so the temperature and length of time I used differs from the original. We'd love to see if you recreate this version of the recipe, if you do let us know over on our social media or contact us via email!
5 tablespoons of oil , a little extra for greasing
200g of iChoc Classic Chocolate
170 g self-raising flour
3 heaped teaspoons cocoa powder
180g golden caster sugar
1 vanilla pod
230ml dairy free milk
1 bag of Vegan Smarties
Preheat the oven to 195ºC. Grease a square baking tin (roughly 20cm) with a little oil, then line with greaseproof paper.
Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base doesn’t touch the water. Break 150g of chocolate into the bowl and allow it to melt, then set aside to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, sieve the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar and a pinch of salt. Halve the vanilla pod lengthways, scrape out the seeds, then add them to the bowl. Stir in the oil, milk and melted chocolate until combined.
Roughly chop and stir in the remaining chocolate and most of the smarties, reserving some for the topping. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle over the remaining smarties, then place into the hot oven for 35 minutes, or until cooked on the outside, but still gooey in the middle.
