3 Steps Walnut Chocolate Squares


I have been very busy and didn't really have time to make dessert for the past weeks. But today after my  early dinner I have decided  to make some really simple chocolate squares for my dear hubby .It's easy as 1 2 3! But really satisfying... Crispy crust...Warm and moist in the inside. Top up with a scoop of ice-cream would have been perfect!

Ingredients:
220 grams unsalted butter - Cut into small cubes
170 grams (6 ounces) Semi Sweet chocolate - Coarsely chopped
4 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla essence 
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup walnuts / pecans - coarsely chopped
Icing sugar for dusting


Method:
Preheat oven 325 degrees F ( 160 degrees C)
Step 1) Place sauce pan on low heat and melt butter and chocolate, stirring until mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool.
Step 2) Beat eggs and sugar with electrical mixer until fluffy then add chocolate mix, vanilla and salt. Continue beating till mixture is combine then fold in flour with spoon. Mix well.
Step 3) Pour batter into a greased 9'x9"x2" non-stick baking pan and sprinkle with walnuts.
Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely and dust with icing sugar before serving.


>> Tip to note : 
- To ensure the properly baked. Test with toothpick - insert into center and come out with crumbs attached.
- You can substitute walnuts with other nuts of your choice

  21. It is so fun to talk with someone all the way in Malaysia. I get so tickled that everyone is connecting through food blogs like this! You asked how to make creme brulees without a torch. If you put the ramekins on a tray right underneath the broiler of your oven, it should burn the sugar on the top. It might take a bit longer than with a torch and would need to be watched carefully. We bought a simple torch for very cheap at the hardware store. Good luck if you make them!
