Dark Chocolate Macadamia Brownies

Giving in to my cravings of brownies. :P

Very moist and fudgy.... hmmm... i'm in fudge heaven!
What you need
  • 200gm butter
  • 180gm dark chocolate (broken into pieces)
  • 180gm caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 4 eggs
  • 150gm self-rising flour (sifted)
  • 100g roasted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 100g dark chocolate droplets
What to do
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C, and line an 8-in square cake tin with baking paper and set aside.
  • Melt 180gm of dark chocolate and butter in a brain marie. Once the mixture is smooth and shiny, set aside to cool for 8-10 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate mix has cooled, add caster sugar and vanilla extract and whisk in till smooth. Then add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition. The mixture should be thick and gooey.
  • Coat the macadamia nuts and 100g of chocolate chunks in flour and set aside.
  • Fold in the flour into the chocolate mixture.
  • Fold in the coated macadamia and chocolate droplets.
  • Pour batter into the lined baking tray and bake for 40-50 minutes, or till a wooden skewer inserted into the middle comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it.
  • Once baked, allow to cool completely, then chill the brownie in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm it up, making it easier to slice.
