  • 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter top quality
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fleur de sol
  • 3/4 cup roasted and chopped assorted nuts or whatever nuts you have in your pantry. I highly recommend they be roasted before you chop them.


  • Preheat the oven to 325 Fahrenheit and allow to preheat while you are make the batter.
  • Melt the butter over low heat with the chocolate. Stir consistently until incorporated and glossy and lovely.
  • Remove the butter and chocolate (once melted together) off the stove, and add the sugar (stir as you add), the two eggs and the vanilla. Stir until combined.
  • Add the flour, salt and nuts. Stir until combined.
  • Prepare a 8-inch baking pan. Line with parchment paper, and pour in the batter. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (each oven will be unique). Bake until softly firm in the middle.
  • Remove from the oven. Leave in the pan until the brownies have cooled. Cut into small or large squares and enjoy with a lovely hot cup of something wonderfully cozy.
