4 . Slowly add the chocolate mixture into the bowl and mix again. Add the walnuts.

5 . Cover a 9*9″ brownie pan with parchment paper and pour the brownie mixture.

6 . Bake for 20 minutes. (Don’t over cook it, it will lose its fluffiness). Let it cool for 15 minutes before serving.

* Double boiler technique: 

Add 1” of water to a medium saucepan or pot and bring to a very gentle simmer. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot so that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. You want the steam from the water to gently warm the bowl. Add the chopped chocolate and butter to the bowl and stir occasionally with a spatula until smooth and melted.

Place the new potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and let it boil for 5-8 minutes. Once pre-cooked (they should still be a little firm), drain them.
