Fudgy Chocolate Macadamia Brownies

Fudgy Chocolate Macadamia Brownies



Fudgy chocolate macadamia brownies are simply devine. Moist, fudgy, chocolatety, nutty and all shiny and crusty on the top. Everything a girl wants from a brownie.

Weʼve been making this same brownie recipe for years and never been tempted to look at another recipe. No idea where the recipe originally came from, but it’s called ‘the brownie contingents fudgy brownieʼ. Weʼve googled that name but nothing comes up sadly, as we would love to give credit to the maker.

Serious chocolate lovers, these are the brownies you need in your repertoire. With a high amount of fat (in the form of butter and chocolate) and less flour, these sweet squares do not hold back. You can expect an intensely rich chocolate flavor and a dense and super moist texture that just might remind you of chocolate heaven.

Brownies are just that special treat where itʼs almost impossible to resist taking another slice.

Super easy to make

These brownies are so easy to make and clean up after. One saucepan and the paper lined baking tin…too easy!

Toasting the macadamia

It is worth taking ten minutes to toast the macadamia as it brings a real depth of flavour to the brownie. Simply place raw nuts on a baking tray and place in preheated 180 c (350 f) oven for 10 minutes or so.
