I always love Christmas time to meet my old friends and cousins with overnight parties, decorating Christmas tree and home.

Now, it’s the time again as its new year eve and here, I am presenting you all walnut cocoa brownie. These brownies are perfect for any occasion and especially in this month you have many reasons to celebrate.. So it the perfect time to have a piece of brownie with your loved ones.

Walnut cocoa brownie are fuzzy, chocolaty, yummy and just melt in your mouth. They have the softest center and chewiest crust. Walnut add a nice crunch and are big source of omega 3 so healthy too. The best part of these brownies is that the preparation is very simple and requires only a handful of commonly used ingredients found in every household.

I have prepared these brownies many times and they are always yummilicious. You can add more nuts such as almonds, dates etc. as per your choice. You can also warm them again in the microwave and enjoy few pieces with some ice-cream or along with a cup of your favorite beverage.

Now, sieve all purpose flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder all together in a mixing bowl.

Beat the sugar, and butter lightly. Add eggs and vanilla extract and beat again till they are light and fluffy. Now add flour mixture with wet ingredients lightly using cut and fold method with the help of spatula. Add chopped walnuts and mix well.

Now, pour the batter into the greased pan and sprinkle the left over walnuts and shift the mixture into the preheated oven for 30-35 mins. You can check the baking by inserting the toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean then your brownies are ready. Let brownies cool down and transfer to a cutting board and spread the chocolate glaze over it and have it into pieces.
