The Best Brownie Recipe in the World...

Ty has been lusting after this recipe... more so since I'm no longer in Adelaide to make them for him... :)... so here it is... so simple... so easy... so unhealthy... but soooo good! Mmmmm... enjoy!

Chocolate Chunk Brownies
Source: Epicure Chocolate Book (the best recipes over 20 years from the Epicure column of The Age newspaper)

Ingredients:
1 cup self raising flour
(I always make my own sr flour because it rises better - Add 2 tsp of baking powder to 1 cup of plain flour)
½ cup dessicated coconut
(I use shredded coconut... I don't know think it makes much difference)
½ cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
(Good quality dutch cocoa makes it richer, but I've had perfectly wonderful results using cheap cocoa, either nestle or cadbury)
125 grams butter, melted
(I use unsalted)
1 tin condensed milk
100g dark choc, roughly chopped
(I use 1/2 a block of Nestle Plaistowe Dark Chocolate)
100g white choc, roughly chopped
(I use 1/2 a block of Nestle Plaistowe White Chocolate)
½ cup of chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, macadamias)
(I always use macadamias... the best nuts in the world!)

Method:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Mix together flour, coconut, sugar, cocoa, butter and condensed milk.
Pour mixture into a greased 22cm square tin.
Press chocolate and nuts into the top.
Bake for 25 min, it should still be chewy.
