Ingredients

Brownies

  • 4oz / 113g dark chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ stick / 85g unsalted butter
  • ⅔ cup / 133g light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup / 60g all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup / 21g cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional)

Teddy bear cookies

  • ¼ cup / 30g flour
  • ¼ cup / 25g oats (quick cooking, or old fashioned oats blitzed a little in the food processor)
  • 1½ tablespoons / 19g light brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
  • teaspoons water
  • 2 tablespoons / 28g unsalted butter, melted

Garnish

  • dark chocolate, melted
  • white chocolate, melted
  • ruby chocolate hearts

Instructions

Brownies

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Grease and line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt the chocolate and unsalted butter in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water. Once everything is melted and combined, take it off the heat and let it cool completely.
  • While waiting for the chocolate mixture to cool, beat together the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until it turns thick and light in color.
  • Stir in the cooled chocolate and fold in the sifted flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Pour into the pan and bake for about 20 minutes. Let it cool completely before taking it out of the pan.

Teddy bear cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 320°F/160°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together flour, oats, ground flaxseed, sugar, and salt. Pour in water and melted unsalted butter and mix until the dough comes together. Shape the cookie dough into teddy bears and place them on the baking sheet. Bake them for about 25 minutes.

Assemble

  • Use some melted chocolate to stick the teddy bear cookies and chocolate hearts on the brownie.
  • Use some more melted chocolate to draw facial features on the teddy bears.
