Walnut Brownie

I used the chocolate left over from the fondue to make this. It’s a simple recipe with no mixer needed. Walnuts are optional for a crunchier taste. Serve it warm with a dollop of ice-cream and it’s simply heavenly ! Happened to have some leftover grapes so decided to top it with these fruits. Surprisingly, the combination turns out to be great too !

(Makes 16 brownies)
Ingredients :
140g semi-sweet/bitter-sweet chocolated, chopped
113g unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 tbsp cocoa powder
200g sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 eggs
95g all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
125g semi-sweet chcocolate chips (I replace with walnuts instead!)
Method :
1. Preheat oven to 177 degrees C and place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter (or spray with a nonstick cooking spray) an 8 inch (20 cm) square pan.
2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a large stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from heat and stir in the cocoa powder and sugar . 
3. Next, whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Finally, stir in the flour, salt and chocolate chips/walnuts (if using).
4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a little batter and a few moist clumps clinging to it. Do not over bake. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
