125g unsalted butter, plus a little extra to grease your pan (or cheat and use silicon 'tin' and baking parchment sheets!)
50g bitter chocolate, I used Orange Mantra
50g self-raising flour
125g caster sugar
25g dried cranberries (original recipe calls for 125g broken walnut pieces but have a guest with nut allergy so steered clear!)
2 large eggs beaten
drop vanilla essence (I use extract)
Pre-heat your oven 180o/ 160o fan/ 350f. Grease/ line a 8inch baking tin/ tray
Melt the butter, remove from the heat and add broken up chocolate, stirring gently until all melted
Sift the flour, sugar, salt and cranberries. Fold in the butter mixture, then the eggs and vanilla, it will look quite runny at this stage!
Pour into your tin and bake for up to 30 minutes or until soft in the middle and appear cooked through. Allow to cool in the tin until mixture slightly comes away from the sides, transfer to a cooling rack, cut into desired shape and go wait in another room until cooled down or you will have burnt fingers and tongue.
Many thanks to Eliza and Chocolate and Love for sending me the gorgeous bars :)
