What makes these brownies my favorite over the last months is that beautiful black and white combo once they are cut. These chocolate filled brownies are so easy to make; the addition of a white chocolate bar right in their center makes them so pretty and festive.
You can easily make this recipe gluten free and dairy free (see notes). So, this is really just for everyone who loves chocolate!

Chocolate Bar Filled Brownies
For the brownies:
- 200 grams dark chocolate
- 100 grams butter
- 140 grams 2/3 cup sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 3 large eggs
- 70 grams 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
For the filling:
- 200 grams 2 bars white chocolate
Preheat oven to 170 Celsius degrees and grease the pan.
In a bowl, place dark chocolate and butter and melt together in the microwave or over double boiler. Mix well until a uniform, shiny mixture is obtained.
Add sugar and salt and mix to a smooth mixture.
Break in the eggs and add them one at a time, mixing between each addition, until they are incorporated into the batter.
Add in the flour and mix well until smooth.
Pour half of the batter into the pan and flatten with a spatula to an even thin layer.
Arrange the two chocolate bars in the center and pour the rest of the batter over them. Straighten the top.
Bake the brownies for 18-25 minutes or until they set at the edges but is still slightly soft in the center.
Cool completely to room temperature and refrigerate for another half hour before cutting.
Cut into squares of the desired size and serve.
- You can fill the brownie with any type of chocolate bar you like - milk, white, ruby or caramel.
- It is very important not to omit the salt because it balances the sweetness and emphasizes the chocolate flavor.

- You can freeze the brownies in an airtight container for up to a month.
- It is recommended to serve the brownies at room temperature for an ideal texture.

- Gluten-free version: Use cornstarch, almond meal or gluten free oatmeal in the same amount instead of all-purpose flour.
- Dairy free version: Use 80 grams of coconut oil instead of butter. You can also use margarine or vegan butter in the same amount instead of butter. Make sure to use a dairy free chocolate bar for the filling.
- If you want, you can also add chopped nuts to the brownie mixture for added crunch.
