Seriously chocolatey brownies with love, lovely pecans, what’s not to like?
I haven’t posted a chocolate recipe for AGES! So now is the time to go completely out on all chocolate. These brownies have dark chocolate and cocoa powder to satisfy all of your chocolate needs.
Even better, Minimum mixing required! Just for the eggs, use a hand-held mixer or a whisk if you feeling strong. There is no need for the heavy-duty freestanding mixer today. Yay!
These brownies are seriously the best I have come across in a long time without thousands of grams of butter. Just a mere 100g of butter give these brownies the right, moistness, chewiness, and denseness. Looking at Ina Garten’s recipe calls for a massive 450g of butter as well as 500g of chocolate!
That is just for 20 brownies.
(Those figures make me feel a bit queasy, what about you?)
I prefer my brownies.
When I tried these brownies, My mouth was in chocolate heaven! the dark, deep chocolate captives your taste-buds and the pecan gives it the best nuggets of bite and earthiness. I served my brownies with a shot of milk for a refreshing finish.
Milk and chocolate are perfect partners, just like…
- Tomatoes and basil
- Peanut butter and Banana
- Banana and honey
- Bread and butter
- Carrot and coriander
- Butternut squash and coconut
The batter for the brownies is uber thick, don’t worry! This will add even more denseness and moistness.
Go now and give these little brownies a try, you’ll thank me…
Feel free to change the pecans to cashew or any other nut and change the chocolate percentage to suit your taste.
