Everyone loves brownies, but these hazelnut brownies are an extra special treat and such an easy dessert recipe that you’ll want to come back to again and again. Using a lot of ingredients that you’ll probably already have in your cupboard, using hazelnuts within the brownie recipe adds a lovely crunch to the gooey brownie, and caramel ice cream makes a lovely change from vanilla.

This dessert recipe makes enough brownies to serve six people, but it’s easy to double the quantities to make a bigger batch if you’ve got more mouths to feed.
