For those of you that do not live here in Australia a Golden Gaytime is actually an icecream on a stick very similar to the toffee crunch one in the UK. This recipe uses the crumbs on the outside of the icecream that have just stared to be sold here in a tin for use in all sorts of things. This is my way of using them to jazz up an already yummy brownie.
125g dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
75g flaked almonds
100g dark choc chips
100g white choc chips
3/4 cup plain flour
Pinch of salt
3 large eggs lightly beaten
200g dark chocolate 75%
1/2 tin of golden gaytime crumbs or similar
In a large heatproof bowl over simmering water place the 125g dark chocolate and the butter. Gently melt ensuring the water does not touch the base of the bowl.
Once melted remove from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients.
Pour into a lined brownie tin and bake on 160° for 30 minutes.
Leave to cool for about 20 minutes.
Make the topping
Heat the cream through in a saucepan until almost boiling but do not boil.
Pour the heated cream over the dark chocolate and stir until all the chocolate has melted. Allow the mix to cool and thicken then gently pour over the cooled brownie.
Sprinkle the golden gaytime crumbs on top and place in the fridge to set.
Slice and serve.
These brownies are incredibly rich so do not cut them into big pieces. In this case smaller is better and if you want more just have seconds.
They freeze really well too.
