For these super rich and fudgey five-nut brownies, I altered my grandma Hornsby’s brownie recipe a little, adding more chocolate and more nuts and omitting the leavening to produce a dense and chocolatey brownie for the most discerning palates! Brownies were the first thing I learned to make as a kid. Make these with your mini-Valentines and carry on my tradition 😉
For the nuts, I love using mixed roasted nuts but you could make these with just one or two kinds — whatever your favorites are. It’s important to the flavor to use roasted nuts, though, rather than raw. I prefer salted but if you’re on a low-sodium diet, then unsalted will work just fine.
If you’re all out of baking chocolate, I also have a cocoa brownies recipe that’s simple and uses regular pantry ingredients.
