I’m not really much of a chocolate eater but put a block of Fruit & Nut Dairy Milk in front of me and I’ll devour the whole thing in the blink of an eye. Normally I prefer really strong dark chocolate to milk, but something about the combination of crunchy nuts and soft chewy raisins is irresistible.

This chocolate brownie recipe is totally inspired by my love of Fruit & Nut Chocolate and can be made with any combination of fruit and nuts you have on hand. A great way to clear out random bits and pieces at the back of your pantry.

I’ve used dried cranberries and almonds, but sultanas and raisins will taste great too. Try using walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios, or a combination of whatever nuts you have on hand.

These brownies are nice and chewy, and so easy to whip up with minimal mess. The batter is mixed up in the saucepan you melt the butter in, so there is hardly any cleaning up. Make sure you start with a medium size saucepan to make sure all your ingredients will fit.

This is the second batch I’ve made, I usually cut up and freeze the pieces straight away so I’m not tempted to eat the whole batch in one go. When you fancy something sweet with a cuppa in the afternoon, just pop a slice in the microwave for a few seconds and enjoy.

I notices a few bits were missing the other day, turns out the Mr has been eating them straight out of the freezer!

    I made this one today. Instead of sugar I added couple spoons of raw honey, and I put one grated apple inside to be a little bit moist. And when it was almost baked, I started to scroll through your interesting website, and I forgot that I am baking something. And I was sitting next to the oven! Oh my, oh well. It’s a little bit too dry now, but still completely eddible. With lots of tea or milk with it, of course. 😀 What did I learn from this? Be focus on one activity at a time. 🙂 😀 Otherwise it’s a great recipe.

      I always get distracted by the internet. Once I burnt soup! It boiled down to nothing and ended up a big black mess at the bottom of the pan!

        Oh my god, that took forever to boil down! 🙂 I did it once with bolognese sauce. I wanted to warm it up a little bit, and then I left the kitchen. I just remember my sister screaming much later, that kitchen is in white smoke, and that I burned the whole sauce. Well, not quite all sauce, in the middle of the pan was still something that looked pretty much edible to me, and I put that on spaghetti and ate it anyway. Well, I was very hungry, that’s for sure. 😀

    I made these yesterday and wow, they are moist rich and delicious.
    I did make a little addition of 70% dark chocolate added just before baking which seemed to raise to the top and its like its been coated in chocolate yummy.

    This is a receipt I will be keeping and using on regularly. Thank you
