Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001 I was looking for some good and simple recipes which I wanted to bake for my dad's party some weeks back. Then I saw a post from The Little Teochew on Cocoa Brownies which looked very presentable, and in bite size! I wasted no time in trying this out and was very happy with the result. I named it - Brownie Truffles! It certainly can posed off as truffles with the sprinkle of cocoa powder on it. This is one sweet treat which you can certainly impress!

Makes a 14 x 11" tray


282g Liv Unsalted butter
340g Caster sugar
164g Unsweetened cocoa powder (natural or Dutch-process)
1/2 tsp Fine Rock salt
1 tsp Vanilla extract
4 Large cold eggs
132g Plain flour


1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line the bottom and sides of a 14" x 11" rectangular baking tray with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two opposite sides.

2. Combine the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a medium heatproof bowl and set the bowl in a bigger pot with barely simmering water. Stir from time to time until the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth and hot enough that you want to remove your finger fairly quickly after dipping it in to test.

3. Remove the bowl from the pot and set aside briefly until the mixture is only warm, not hot. It looks fairly gritty at this point, but don’t fret — it smooths out once the eggs and flour are added.

4. Stir in the vanilla with a wooden spoon. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring vigorously after each one. When the batter looks thick, shiny, and well blended, add the flour and stir until you cannot see it any longer, then beat vigorously for 40 strokes with the wooden spoon or a rubber spatula. Spread evenly in the lined pan.
5. Bake until a toothpick plunged into the center emerges slightly moist with batter, about 20 to 25 minutes. Let it cool completely on a rack.

5. Lift up the ends of the parchment or foil liner, and transfer the brownies to a cutting board. Cut them into 1" square each. Should give >80 bite size pieces.
