Chocolate Macadamia Nut Brownies


125 g butter, chopped

90 g semisweet dark chocolate squares, chopped coarsely

90 g milk chocolate pieces, chopped coarsely

1/2 cup raw brown sugar, firmly packed

2 tablespoon honey

2 eggs, beaten lightly

1 cup plain flour

2/3 cup macadamia nuts, chopped coarsely


  • Preheat the oven to moderate.
  • Grease a deep 19cm-square cake pan, and cover the base with baking paper.
  • Combine the butter and chocolate in a pan and stir over a low heat until both have melted.
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the sugar and honey.
  • Stir in the lightly beaten eggs.
  • Sift the flour.
  • Add the sifted flour and the nuts and gently fold into the mixture until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes – or until the brownies are firm.
  • Cool the brownies in the pan, and cut into squares when cold.
