Gotta Love Food Tech ^_^

Ahaa guess what i made in Food Tech on thursdaayy?
Deliecious CHOCOLATE brownies xD
They were really nice but a bit too buttery

We started making them in Prd 5 & 6 but during the first half of prd 5 we were just talking and writing down random stuff and the recipe...

It took my partner and i a long time to melt the chocolate for the base. We had an infered stove -__- While everyone else had a gas one. It took us like 1 hour to melt 200g of chocolate and butter. It wasn't really fun. In the end we had to borrow a friends gas stove and only then did the chocolate start to melt!

After a while we managed to place everything into the oven and we let it cook/ bake for 30 minutes though you're actually only supposed to cook it for 20 minutes. While that was all happening, we melted chocolate and cream for the top of the Chocolate brownie. This time our infered stove worked perfectly fine... i was so fustrated loolz.

When it was home time, our brownies were finally cooked~ Then we poured the melted chocolate and cream on top of the base and let it cool for about 5 minutes. A lot of people had to catch the bus... including me so i cut it up quickly... i burnt my finger like twice @_@ and most of the brownie got really crumbled up it wasnt funny. The two brownies that are in the picture are the only perfect ones that i could actually find.
