After lunch today, I decided to try this recipe for brownies. It sounded classic and simple to make. Plus, I had recently purchased a tin of Hershey’s cocoa. There were some hazelnuts in the fridge that I toasted and cut up to add to the brownies.
I browned them in a little butter and then put them into a plastic bag. With the top side of a cleaver turned upside down, I gently whacked the nuts still in the bag on a cutting board until they were cut into medium sized chunks. Then, I added them to the melted chocolate, egg, vanilla and sugar/flour mixture.
Baked in a 325 degree oven for about a half an hour. Yummy!
