These nutty, white chocolate brownies from Divine are a decadent mid-afternoon treat

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and grease and line a 23cm shallow square tin with greaseproof paper.

2. Gently heat some water in a saucepan, place a bowl over but make sure the water does not touch the bowl. Add the chocolate and butter and melt over a very gentle heat. Don’t rush the process, just let it melt slowly and very gently.

3. Place the eggs and sugar in a separate bowl, whisk until well blended. Remove the bowl of chocolate and place the bowl with the egg mixture over the pan of water.

4. Whisk for several minutes until thick and pale. Remove the bowl from the heat, whisk until cool.

5. Using a spatula, fold the melted butter and chocolate and the vanilla extract into the egg mixture with the 100g chopped chocolate and nuts until evenly blended.

6. Sift in the flour and fold in carefully until well blended. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in centre of the oven for 40 minutes until just firm to touch.

7. Cool in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar and cut into small squares.

Thanks for your comment, so to clarify - the first 125g of chocolate is melted with butter over a pan of simmering water and the second 100g chopped chocolate is added in step 5, as they will become chocolate chips in the brownies.

Hope this clears up any confusion,let us know if you make them.

There are two separate measures of white chocolate ingredients listed in this recipe. Is this correct and where is the second lot used???
