I made these brownies over the weekend and they went down a treat! Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get any decent photos of them before they were almost all gone! As you can see from the photo below, they were crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside!

Gooey Triple Chocolate Brownies

You will need
– 20cm square baking tin
– Baking parchment 
– Large bowl
– Medium bowl
– Small bowl
– Electric whisk (a hand whisk will do but it’s hard work!)
– Large saucepan or a microwave
– Chopping board
– Sharp knife
– 185g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
– 3 large eggs
– 275g golden caster sugar
– 85g plain flour
– 40g cocoa powder
– 185g dark chocolate
– 80g white chocolate
– 80g milk chocolate
1. Break the dark chocolate into small pieces and, along with the butter, place into the medium bowl.
2. Half fill the saucepan with water and rest the bowl on top. Place the saucepan on the hob, on a medium heat so the contents of the bowl can melt. Stir them occasionally. Once the butter and the chocolate have melted, take the pan off the heat and allow the contents to cool.
3. Using the chopping board, chop the milk and white chocolate into small pieces and set aside.
4. Preheat the oven at 160C or gas mark 4 and line the baking tin with the baking parchment, or grease with butter.
5. Place the flour and the cocoa butter into the small bowl and set aside.
6. Place the three eggs and the caster sugar into a large bowl. Using the whisk, whisk the contents until they are thick and creamy and form soft peaks. This will take between 3 and 8 minutes if you are using an electric mixer and even longer if you are doing it by hand.
7. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture in the medium bowl into the eggy mixture in the large bowl. Gently fold the mixture using figure of eight movements until it is all one colour. Try not to knock out any of the air that you put in in step 6.
8. Using the same figure of eight movements, carefully mix in the flour and cocoa from the small bowl.
9. When the ingredients are all mixed together, add the chunks of milk and white chocolate to the mixture.
10. Pour the mixture into the pre-prepared tin and put on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, gently shake the tin. If the mixture wobbles in the middle, put it back in for another 5 minutes.
11. Leave the brownies to cool until they are completely cold, then cut into squares or triangles.

My boyfriend, Mark came back on Thursday and I hadn’t seen him for six weeks due to us both going home at different times. We decided that Friday night would be Date Night. We started off in Buddys Diner which is a lovely America themed diner, here in Winchester. I had Idaho Loaded Skins to start which were delicious and Mark had Garlic Mushrooms. I then had a BBQ Chicken wrap and fries while Mark had a T Bird burger (which is a burger topped with salsa and chillies) with onion rings. We washed these down with cream soda and a coke. I definitely recommend going to Buddys if you’re ever in Winchester. The atmosphere is great and the food is so tasty!
We then went a couple of doors down to Plain & Fancy, which is a cocktail bar where we were joined by our friends Charlotte and James. I had a Candyfloss (which is made with real candyfloss!) and a Chocolate Mojito. There’s nothing like a good cocktail!
We then moved on to our favourite pub, The Black Boy. The best thing about this pub is the weird and wonderful decorations! We were sat next to a real stuffed polar bear head and an aga. Along a shelf which was behind us were jars which contained a pickled snake, a pickled seahorse and a pickled squid. There are so many stuffed animals in there, my favourite is the baboon wearing a kilt! All the tables are different too, it’s a lovely quirky pub and is right by the river so the walk to it is really nice. 
I hope you all had a good Friday night too!

This week, I’ve picked New Look to spend my imaginary £100 in. New Look is one of my favourite High Street shops. Not only are they always on trend, their clothes are always at very reasonable prices too.. plus they also offer 10% student discount which always rises to 20% around loan time (very sneaky!)

This look is very summery and would be no good with the current weather that we’re having. I’m still hoping that the weather’s going to pick up and maybe we’ll have a sunny September. If that did happen, this is definitely the sort of outfit I’d want to wear. The pleated midi skirt can be found in a lot of shops at the moment but this one is a great price at only £24.99. It also comes in a range of different colours, the dark red was my favourite though. It will look great in the autumn too, I could see myself wearing it on a nice sunny day in October (preferably my birthday if you’re reading this, Mother Nature) before the weather gets too cold.
 The cut out vest I have chosen is actually meant to be tied at the bottom, but in this outfit I’d tuck it into the skirt. I love the cut out detail and the scalloped collar. I would wear this top with a lot of different outfits, it would also look great with a pair of high waisted denim shorts!
 I really need to get myself some brown or tan moccasins, I’ve featured them in so many wishlists so far. My beloved black ones wore out and I’ve yet to replace them. The ones I’ve chosen here are so cheap at only £15 and they’re real leather! You can’t turn them down at that price, can you? They’d also go with a lot of outfits, especially jeans when it gets a bit colder.
 The brogue bag is a lovely colour and is in the same style as a pair of brogues, which I love. Again, this would go with a whole load of different outfits. The colour would work with anything and it looks smart but also casual at the same time. You could even use it on a night out!
The grand total of this lovely outfit is a bargainous £58.98! This is why I love New Look! There would be enough left over to get another outfit. Now I just need someone to give me some money or gift vouchers, I wish my birthday would hurry up!

What would you pick if you had £100 to spend in New Look?
