Dreaming of summers spent at the Jersey shore led me to memories of Rum Raisin Ice Cream. I pulled this recipe together based on that sweet memory. I added chocolate...because...well why not?  These tasty bars have the right balance of sweetness with a hint of rum. They are perfect served with a cold glass of milk. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Chocolate Rum Raisin Brownies

1/2 cup raisins
2 tbsp rum
200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
125g butter
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup olive oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa

  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 9x9 square pan. Place the raisins in a small bowl and pour over the rum. Set aside to soak while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  • Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered on medium (50 per cent) for 1 minute, or until almost melted. Add the brown sugar and olive oil, and stir to combine. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into the chocolate mixture, and fold gently. Stir in the rum and raisins, and fold through quickly to combine, being careful not to over-mix. Pour into the pan and bake for 40 minutes, or until just cooked when a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
