Chocolate Brownies with Carmelised Nuts and Chocolate Fudge Sauce

brownies Here is the lovely recipe TYs used last week.  The recipe is from MacNean House,  where Nevin Maguire is the head chef. It is an excellent recipe and we produced some very decadent, delicious brownies.   One thing to watch out for is the caramelised nuts, we had a few girls who took their eyes of the saucepan and ended up with burnt nuts! I don’t like pecans, so I used hazelnuts in mine and they were delicious.  I also had to shorten the cooking time at home to 20 minutes , as my fan oven is very hot.
