  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Line a 22 cm baking pan with parchment paper. Brush with some vegetable oil and dust with some cocoa powder. This will prevent the brownies from sticking.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Heat the cherry sweet, water and butter in a small saucepan very low heat, just until the butter melts.
  • Lightly beat the egg with the egg white and add it to the cherry sweet mixture.
  • It is very important to allow the batter to cool for 5 minutes before we add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
  • Use a spatula to combine the two mixtures together but do not mix too long. Add the chocolate chips and mix just enough to combine.
  • If you mix longer the brownies will not come out soft and light.
  • Transfer mixture to baking pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. It is ready when you poke with a toothpick and it comes out dry and clean.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.
  • Remove brownies from pan and cut into pieces.
  • Serve with extra cherry sweet and sprinkle with caster sugar.
