1 Cream the sugar and eggs together.
2 Add butter, cut into cubes, and mix in until there are no lumps. Then add the vanilla essence.
3 Sieve the cocoa, baking powder and flour. Fold in carefully to the mixture. Add the pinch of salt.
4 Pour into a greased square cake tin and cook for 20-25 mins at 180C.
5 To check the brownies are cooked, make sure they feel spongy to the touch and that when you insert a skewer into the middle, it comes out clean.
6 When cool, shake edible glitter sprinkles over the top to give them a fairy glow.
