Forman & Field Luxury Chocolate Brownies ( makes 8- 10 servings) Ingredients . 225g dark chocolate . 225g unsalted butter . 50g dark chocolate, chopped . 200g caster sugar . 100g blanched & chopped walnuts . 1 bourbon vanilla pod* . 150g ground almonds . 3 free- range eggs, beaten Method . Preheat oven to 140 C / 275 F / gas mark 1. . In a bowl over simmering water melt the sugar, butter and 225g chocolate, stirring until mixed and melted, but taking care not to heat too much. . Take off the heat, allow to cool slightly, and add the seeds from the vanilla pod, walnuts, ground almonds, eggs and chopped chocolate. (* The Handpicked Collection's kitchen didn't have a vanilla pod, so used ½ tsp of vanilla essence which worked fine). . Line a buttered, shallow 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment to cover the base and pour in the mixture. . Bake for 35 minutes then give the tray a gentle shake: the brownie should wobble very slightly in the middle. If it still appears liquid, give it another 5 minutes. . Take out and allow to cool completely in the tin. The texture should be rich, fudgy and slightly moist. . Leaving it in the tin, slice into squares of your preferred size and use a thin fish slice to ease them out one at a time.
