If you’re into baking, try this recipe!

Flourless Chocolate Brownies with Hot Chocolate Sauce:

– 8 oz. semisweet chocolate                           – 1 cup of sugar

– 2 sticks of butter                                               – 2 t. vanilla extract

– 3 eggs, beaten                                                    – 1 1/2 cup ground almonds

– 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Melt the chocolate and butter gently over low heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Remove pan from heat, add the sugar and vanilla, and let cool. Beat in the eggs and walnuts. Pour into a 9-inch-square baking pan, and bake for 25 minutes (the top will have set, but the mixture will still be gooey).

– 3 oz. dark chocolate                                      – 1/2 cup heavy cream

– 2 t. instant espresso powder dissolved in 2 T of water

– 1 T golden syrup or corn syrup

Break up the chocolate and put in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the other ingredients. Place over a gentle heat, and let everything melt together. Serve in a jug.
