Recipes - Brownies

Have I mentioned that is an awesome website?  I found this brownie recipe there and it is tops. Super quick to throw together and simple, so it's a great recipe to do with kids. I changed it a bit but it worked perfectly so I'll let you know how I do it and you have the link to the original recipe.  There is only one flaw, it's so chewy and chocolatey and rich and delicious that you can't stop at one!!

200g good quality dark chocolate, chopped
150g unsalted butter, cubed
160g brown sugar
1/2 tbs vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
85g plain flour
50g walnuts, roughly chopped
25g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
20g white choc chips
icing sugar and cocoa to dust

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 160°C.  Grease and line a slice tin with baking paper.
Step 2 - Place butter and chocolate in a large microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 1 minute on medium-high heat.  Remove and stir with a balloon whisk.  If not completely melted, return to microwave for 20 seconds.
Step 3 - Add sugar and vanilla and whisk until incorporated.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating will with the whisk after each addition then finally add the yolk and flour and stir well.  Lastly, fold through the nuts and white chocolate.
Step 4 - Pour mixture into prepared pan and place in the oven.  Cook for 45 minutes, then remove from oven and leave at room temperature to cool.  Brownies may appear to be runny or soft in the middle when removed from the oven but will set as they cool.  
Step 5 - Once cooled, turn onto a wire rack and gently peel off baking paper.  Slice into pieces and dust with a mixture of icing sugar and cocoa to serve.
