• Triple Chocolate and Nut Brownies

    Triple chocolate nut brownies

    Gooey brownies are my family’s ultimate weakness. I often make a batch and it disappears as soon as it has cooled. These triple chocolate and nut brownies are decadent and gives you a taste explosion.

    It is fudgy, rich and has oozing chocolate chucks in the centre. Any chocolate lover’s dream dessert or treat. 

    Of course you can use a box mix but nothing compares to making it from scratch. Omit the nuts if you or your family have a nut allergy. After trying my recipe, you will definitely not revert back to the box mix – that is how good these triple chocolate and nut brownies are. So go ahead and bake a batch.
