Somehow my review disappeared...here it is again. This is such a full flavoured recipe....the brownies are nutty in taste.....dripping with chocolate and everyone from my 84 year old Dad to my 2 year old grandsnon LOVED it....I've made it perhaps 6 times in the past few weeks...and have doubled the recipe. Give it a go...it's so very "moreish".
