7 oz good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
7 oz butter, chopped
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
7 oz good-quality milk chocolate, chopped
2 1/4 cups walnuts, chopped
1/3 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
vanilla ice-cream and hot chocolate fudge sauce
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 2 inch deep, 7*10 inch pan. Line with baking paper, allowing 1 inch overhang at both long ends.
Combine dark chocolate and butter in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Stir in sugar.
Add eggs and vanilla to chocolate mixture. Mix well. Stir in milk chocolate and walnuts. Sift flour and cocoa together over chocolate mixture. Stir to combine.
Spread brownie mixture into prepared pan. Smooth surface. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre has moist crumbs clinging. Set aside to cool.
Cut brownie into pieces. Serve with ice-cream and chocolate fudge sauce.
