"The DH saw this in Recipe + magazine and asked me to save to make. The cooks tip was that you can store these in an air tight container for up to 4 days (so you can make ahead) and they freeze well for up to 3 months. I have since made this but when I went to the pantry for my white chocolate chips/bits I discovered I only had dark chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel chips/bits so let the DH choose and he chose caramel other than that I made as directed and ended up with dense but moist brownie. DH has suggested a bigger pan may be better so would suggest a 25cm (10" x 10" instead of the 20cm (8" x 8") and he also said they may be better cut into smaller slices even half as they are very rich."
