I've made this 5 Times already, ive found that adding more butter (+100 grams) and 1 extra egg helps during the cookie mixing-in process.
An easy way to crush the Marie biscuits is to turn the pack so that it stands upright on a hard surface like on a table. Take your hand palms and compress down on it hard like you would a hamburger.
This force will crush the cookies inside the package meaning less of a mess for you to clean up.
I'm considering adding some nutts and/or coconut for my next batch. What do you guys recon?
Do any of you guys maybe have any good brownie recipes to share?
