Introduction

There is nothing more yummy than a gooey chocolate brownie, and these ones are made even more delicious because the nuts add to the flavour and the texture, making these brownies simply irresistable! Not only that, but they are quick and easy to make. A great Saturday-afternoon activity for children, too.

  • Additional Information

    Any nuts can be used in this recipe, but I find that macadamia nuts, pecans and brazil nuts are just SUCH a delicious combination. If you cannot get them, though, then natural, unsalted peanuts are also srummy.

    • I'm sorry but this is not a brownie recipe. I have just made these and it's a weird chocolate cake with nuts in it. It tastes alright (not amazing) but is 100% not a brownie.
