Happy Sunday friends! 
We hope you are having a really lovely weekend so far!

This coming Friday,  24th March is Red Nose Day 2017. Maltesers have partnered with Red Nose Day for another year, this time asking for people to rise to the challenge and help to bake-a-million for Comic Relief. All you have to do is bake something delicious using Maltesers, upload a pic onto any social media using the hashtag #bakeamillion, and for each photo uploaded before the 24th March, £5 will be donated by Maltesers towards their total donation of £1 million.

If you want to bake but need a few ideas to set you off, then click here to see a list of exciting and fun Maltesers recipes. There are some super delicious looking ones, so definitely check it out. If you're not much of a baker you can visit the website here, to find out other ways you can fundraise.

We decided to bake some super chocolatey and delicious Maltesers brownies. And to be completely honest, they're some of the yummiest brownies we've ever had or made. Here's how to make them...

200g unsalted butter
200g dark chocolate
3 large eggs 
200g caster sugar
50g plain flour
One big bag of Maltesers

Pre-heat your oven to 170ºC/150ºC Fan/Gas Mark 3 1/2, and line a square (or rectangle) tin with greaseproof paper.

Start by melting your butter and chocolate together in a heat proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure your bowl is not touching the water. Keep stirring until both have melted completely, then take off the heat.

Meanwhile, in a separate large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and caster sugar, using a wooden spoon. When your chocolate mixture has melted, pour this into the eggs and sugar mix and stir until combined along with the flour. You can either put your Maltesers in now or just poke them in later like we did. 

Pour the mixture into your lined tin.

If you haven't already mixed your Maltesers in then go ahead and place them onto your brownie now. We left some on top and poked some under the surface. We also crushed some of the Maltesers and some smarties and sprinkled those on too, along with some red smarties, it is for Red Nose Day remember! 

Place your brownie in the oven and bake for around 40 minutes or until the top has a crust but the brownie underneath is still a bit soft. We found 40 minutes exactly perfect for a gooey and squishy brownie but if you want it slightly more cooked then leave it in the oven for another few minutes.

Leave to cool for around 10 minutes in the tin and then take out and leave to cool further. Slice into square and there you have it; a delicious stack of chocolatey and gooey Malteser brownies. 
Remember to use the hashtag #bakeamillion if you bake anything using Maltesers, to make sure that Maltesers donates your £5 to Red Nose Day.

These brownies are honestly, absolutely divine! They are incredibly, chocolatey and gooey and so so moreish. If you're a lover of brownies (or even if you're not), definitely give these a go, not just for yourself but to help raise money.

Are you doing anything to raise money for Red Nose Day? 
or maybe just buying the classic red nose, if so, which one did you get?
