Hazelnut Brownies

Hazelnut Brownies

  1. Over a pan of gently simmering water melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl, make sure the bottom is not touching the water.
  2. While the chocolate is melting beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, this will take around 5 minutes then stir in the melted chocolate until combined fully. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, salt and fold through gently, add the hazelnuts, making sure you reserve some for sprinkling on, then transfer half of the mixture into a 20cm x 20cm baking tray that has been greased and lined with non-stick baking parchment, pop in the Ferrero Rocher chocolates then add the rest of the brownie mix. Smooth flat then sprinkle over the reserved nuts.
  3. Bake in a pre-heated oven set at 180℃ / gas mark 4 for around 35-40 minutes. Check the brownie has a papery thin crust and it should have a slightly gooey centre, remove from the oven and leave to cool before portioning into 9 then serve with some ice cream.
