Caramelized nuts

Bring the sugar and water to the boil in a wide pan without stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, swirling the pan occasionally until a light brown caramel has formed. Mix in the nuts and salt, leave to cool on a sheet of baking paper. Coarsely chop the caramelized nuts.

Brownie mixture

Melt the butter in a pan. Add the chocolate and stir to melt, allow to cool slightly. Mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar in a bowl. Add the chocolate, mix. Set aside 50 g of the caramelized nuts, add the remainder with the flour, mix, transfer to the prepared tin, smooth down.

To bake

Approx. 20 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. The brownies should still be gooey inside. Allow to cool slightly, cut the brownies into squares in the tin while still warm, leave the brownies to cool in the tin, remove once cool and place on a sheet of baking paper.


Spread the cake icing over the brownies, scatter the reserved nuts on top, leave to dry.

Good to know
Tip: Instead of a brownie tin, use a springform pan (approx. 24 cm in diameter).
Shelf life: Store in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for approx. 1 week.
