This dark chocolate walnut brownie recipe is super easy to put together and it will take no more than 20 minutes!
These dark chocolate brownies must be baked in the oven at 170 C°/340 F.
Before baking pour the walnut brownie batter in a 20 x 20 cm baking tray lined with greased parchment paper.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
Make sure to unmold the brownies as soon as they are out of the oven and let them cool down at room temperature on the parchment paper.
You can tell when brownies are done by inserting a knife or a skewer at the center of the tray. It should come out slightly "dirty" and moist, with brownie crumb stuck to it. This way you will obtain moist brownies.
If you prefer yours to be slightly more cooked, bake them for an extra 5 minutes.
To obtain beautiful chocolate brownies that hold their shape, you must let them cool of completely first. Patience is the key here!
Once they have cooled down, transfer the parchment paper with the brownie cake on to a chopping board and get a sharp knife.
Using a ruler, cut 5x5 cm brownies. You should obtain 16.
They last about 4/5 days stored in a container.
Yes, you can freeze them. This is what I like to do as we are only 2 adults on the house and 16 brownies is a lot!
After cutting them, transfer to a freezer container and keep for about 1 month.
To defrost: let them sit at room temperature overnight.
I you like thinner brownies, you can use 30x40cm baking tray. Make sure to adjust the baking time as they will be ready sooner.
You can replace the walnuts by pecans.
