Chocolate Glaze Cocoa Brownies: Special gift from my heart!

Last week I got a package and when opened I saw these:

100% Cocoa Dutch Powder and Cocoa Dutch 3in1

They are Cocoa dutch products (very big box ^^). If you remember the brand Droste cocoa with nurse logo, they are the same but they change their package now (In Thailand). My Mom likes this brand, I think the old package is beautiful with vintage style picture, ^^. 




This time they re-brand and become "Cocoa Dutch" (the nurse lost her job already, haha). Actually the word "Dutch process" is the process that lower the acid in the cocoa, so the cocoa less tangy.   



New tin is cute too, ^^ 


Because the valentine is coming up, after I got the cocoa powder I think about making something using both cocoa powder and chocolate. The brownie is my answer, so I use cocoa brownie as a base and use a lot of chocolate for glazing it. 




Finally I got very thick chocolate glazed brownies, ^^ that anyone who love chocolate will love it too. But if you don't want a lot of chocolate glaze you can sprinkle the top of the brownie with chocolate chips before baking, it will be delicious too.

Preheat oven to 180 °C
Sift cake flour, baking powder and salt together 
Line 20 cm pan with baking paper. 


Put the butter into a saucepan, melt over low heat, take the saucepan out of the heat and stir in the cocoa powder. Let the mixture cool.

Whip the eggs and the granulated sugar until fluffy and light in color, pour the cocoa mixture into the egg bowl, stir until combine. Add the vanilla extract, stir to combine.    
Pour the flour mixture into the bowl, fold to combine.

Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle half of the walnuts, chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.
Pour the rest of the batter into the pan and sprinkle with the rest of the walnuts.

dailydelicious’ note:  If you don't want to make Chocolate glaze, use 25g of chocolate chips for sprinkle on top of the brownie with the walnut.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is dry and when using the toothpick insert in the middle, the crumbs will be a bit moist.
Let it cool completely

Put the chocolate in a bowl. Boil the whipping cream and pour into the chocolate bowl, wait for 1-2 minutes, and stir lightly until combine.
Pour the glaze over the brownie, rest for 1 hour, then melt teh white chocolate and drizzle over the brownies. Let the glaze firm up befoer cut into pieces.
