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)

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!)

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.
