    Congo Bars

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Makes: 15 - 20


    • 4 large eggs
    • 225g light brown sugar
    • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
    • 250g unsalted butter, melted
    • 150g self-raising flour, sieved
    • Pinch of salt
    • 300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C,gas mark 4 and grease and line a 22cm square baking tin. Whisk the eggs with the sugar until the mixture is smooth and then beat in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Sift the flour and salt on to the egg and butter mix and gradually fold in.
    2. Fold in the chocolate chunks. Spread the mixture out in an even layer in the baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until just cooked. There should be a slight crust but you want the bars to be squidgy in the middle. Leave to cool then cut into bars. Serve straight away or seal in a plastic bag and freeze.
