2. Break up the chocolate into pieces, cut the butter into cubes then mix them up a bit in a heatproof bowl. Put the bowl in the oven as the oven warms up and let the butter and chocolate melt, stir and put back in the oven for a few more minutes until it melts completely.
3. Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a bowl until combined, then beat in the melted chocolate and butter until smooth. Gently fold in the flour and then the beetroot- be kind you don’t need to over mix or mix hard.
4. Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and smooth over the top. Bake for about 20mins
Please don’t be tempted to overcook them. Remove from oven and leave on a rack to cool before cutting into squares.
