Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies with Cocoa Nibs

Makes 16

Everyone loves a brownie! Adding hazelnuts and cocoa nibs adds both texture and flavour to these rich, chocolate-y treats.

  • 150g butter
  • 250g Cocoa Runners dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 75g hazelnuts, dry-roasted and cooled
  • 2 tbsp cocoa nibs

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 20cm square baking tin with foil.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl suspended over a pan of summering water, stirring now and then. Once melted, set the mixture aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale and thick. Gently stir in the melted chocolate mixture until well-mixed.
  4. Sift the flour and gently fold in, using a metal spoon. Stir in the hazelnuts and cocoa nibs. Transfer the mixture to the lined tin.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the mixture has set and a ‘crust’ has formed on the surface. You want the texture under the crust to be soft and fudgy. Remove, cool and slice into 16 squares.
