We have been making these brownies since we opened 9.5 years ago, and they never fail to disappoint.

You can store these in an airtight container for about 3 days; do not refrigerate them as it makes them hard.

You can also use any nuts you prefer; we use whole chopped almonds most the time as we like the texture and flavour most.

These are rich, gooey, nutty and definitely good for the holidays.
