The Three Musketeers: The Dark, The Milk and The White…Chocolate Brownies

“All for one and one for all, united we stand divided we fall.” Alexandre Dumas


A musketeer is a serious soldier, equipped with a weapon. Musketeers are important parts of armies…fighting against all bad matters in life. The milk ones, like Aramis are forever fighters, simply serving in no-fuss ways, helping all, whilst still being accomplished ladies’ treats in hard times…many ladies promise to give them up, for more complex riflemen, which would force the milky ones into lonely priesthood, but their position remains unchanged… Porthos, like all the white ones is a loyal fierce rifleman friend, carrying not too fancy but strong arms. He likes to brag about the women’s love he has enjoyed over the years, but most of it is just talk…white riflemen are just too sweet and mellow to be cruel. Athos, the oldest, most serious and bitter dark one, is the most accomplished of musketeers, sometimes operating as horse-riding dragoon. His life was ruined by being left and betrayed by women, he has had trust issues ever since. The sweet confederacy of these serious Musketeers, The Dark, The Milk and The White is resulting in such prestigious sugar-military relationships, that their company should be reserved for nobles only…

“The merit of all things lies in their difficulty.” Alexandre Dumas


200 g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
100 g milk chocolate, broken into chunks
250 g butter
400 g soft light brown sugar
4 large egg
140 g plain flour
A pinch of salt
50 g cocoa powder
200 g white chocolate


Heat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a small baking tray (around 20x20cm) with baking parchment. Put the chocolate, butter and sugar in a pan and gently melt, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat. Stir the eggs, one by one, into the melted chocolate mixture. Sieve over the flour and cocoa, salt and stir in. Stir in half the white chocolate chips, pour in the into the tray, then scatter over the remaining white chocolate. Bake on the middle shelf for 30 minutes or, if prefer a firmer texture, for 5 mins more. Cool before slicing into squares.


“People ask for advice only in order not to follow it; or, if they do follow it, in order to have someone to blame for giving it.” Alexandre Dumas
