Method
  1. To make the white chocolate chips, melt the cacao butter and mix with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is smooth and forms a thick liquid.
  2. Pour onto a tray and place in the freezer until hard (20-30 min) Once hard, chop into chunks.
  3. To make the brownies, preheat the oven to 180ºC/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  4. Place all the brownie ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth, and a wet dough consistency forms. Stir in the chocolate chips and spoon into a lined baking tin.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, depending on thickness (mine were roughly 1.1/2″ thick). Leave to sit aside in the tin for 10 minutes white preparing the frosting.
  6. To make the frosting, add everything into a food processor until smooth. Remove the brownie from the tin, spread the frosting on top before cutting & devouring!
