I may have found the best dairy free chocolate brownie mix ever! To be fair though, this mix is the only one I’ve tried.. but the brownies come out exceptionally yummy and I’m pretty sure there is nothing better out there. Delicious Alchemy have taken the headache out of baking your own dairy free brownies by providing a mix that is super easy to prepare and bakes fast. I’m very impressed with these.
This mix doesn’t need much in the way of ingredients either, which is nice. 2 large eggs and 100g of unsalted dairy free butter is all you need (which can be found in pretty much any good supermarket) The only other thing you need is grease-proof paper, which most regular bakers will have kicking around anyway… I did, which was fortunate because I forgot to buy it. The first thing you need to do is line a tray with the grease-proof paper (the tray doesn’t need to be very deep) and then pre-heat your oven with the recommended settings the bag says. I had to do a bit of detective work to find out what gas mark to put it on as it didn’t say and I’m pretty new to owning a gas oven.. it’s gas mark 5 (in case you needed it)
The next step is to pour the mix out of the bag into a large bowl, big enough for you to mix the ingredients around in.. doesn’t have to be anything special. As you can see the mix is light brown with chocolate chips in it and it already looks good.
Then you add 100g of melted unsalted butter and mix well. Beat two large eggs lightly and add those to the mix and continue to stir until you end up with the consistency below. I managed to mix it with a regular tablespoon.
This mix was so tasty, even uncooked, that I licked the bowl clean after.. a habit I haven’t broken since I was a child. I probably could eat the whole mix raw, but I doubt that’s good for me!
Now wait until it’s cooked through.. took about 20 mins for mine, but yours may take longer or less depending on your oven. Basically, you want to wait until your knife comes out clean when you stab it in the middle. That’s why there’s a knife hole in mine!
Now you’re supposed to wait until they’re completely cool before you eat them, but if you’re impatient like me then they taste really good straight from the oven and enjoyed while they’re still warm. They taste the best when you wait for them to cool completely. The packaging didn’t lie, they are definitely squidgy and fudgy. The top is nice and crisp, but once you break through that crust you get the gooey cakey consistency of a brownie. Very yummy. I’d definitely make these again and in fact I have since I took these pictures. I highly recommend these! They didn’t last very long!
The price was the only downside, I found them on Amazon and they were a little on the pricey side.. but you did get four lots (which was quite fortunate that I liked it really) You can buy yours on Amazon here too by clicking the picture below. A pack of four was £11.96 at the time of writing this post.
