A thick, chocolatey brownie festively topped with truffles, whipped cream,  and caramelized nuts.

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 6.15 ounces (175 grams) Elite 70% Dark Chocolate

  • 2/3 cup (150 grams) butter

  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar

  • pinch of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee

Truffles

  • 5.3 ounces (150 grams) Elite Dark Chocolate

  • 1/2 cup minus 2 tablespoons (100 mililiters) whipping cream

  • pinch of salt

Cream

  • 1/2 cup (125 milliliters) whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

  • 1 teaspoon instant vanilla pudding

Caramelized Nuts

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • pinch of salt

  • 1 and 3/4 ounces (50 grams) whole walnuts (or your favorite nuts)

Directions

Prepare the Brownies

1.

Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (345 degrees Fahrenheit) and grease a 24-centimeter (nine- and- a- half-inch) round baking pan.

2.

In a medium bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave or in a Bain Marie.

3.

Add sugar, salt and instant coffee and beat well. Add the eggs one after the other, beating between each one.

4.

Add cornstarch, ground almonds, and baking powder and mix just until smooth.

5.

Pour the batter into the baking pan and smooth out the top.

6.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the brownies set on the sides and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out with a slightly soft batter. The brownies will become firm when cool.

Tips:

Don’t leave out the salt from the brownies (and truffles) because it balances the sweetness and emphasizes the chocolate flavor.

Prepare the Truffles

1.

Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.

2.

Add whipping cream and salt and melt together in a microwave or in a double boiler until everything is melted and the mixture is smooth.

3.

Pour the mixture into a four- to five-centimeter (one- and- a- half- to two-inch) half-sphere mold and fill to the top. Freeze the truffles in the pan for two hours, or until they are completely frozen.

4.

Remove the truffles from the baking pan and place them freely on top of the brownies with space between them.

Prepare the Whipped Cream

1.

In a mixer bowl, whip together whipping cream, powdered sugar, instant pudding and vanilla extract until you get a very firm whipped cream.

2.

Transfer the cream into a piping bag with a serrated tip and pipe mounds at the intervals between the truffles.

Prepare the Caramelized Nuts

1.

Place sugar and salt in a small frying pan and make into caramel. When amber caramel is formed, add the whole nuts, lower to a medium flame, and cook the nuts in the caramel for two to three minutes until they aree all thinly coated.

2.

Cool the caramelized nuts on parchment paper until they are completely cooled.

3.

Place caramelized nuts between the mounds of whipped cream and truffles.

Notes:

Keep the cake in a closed container for three to four days. Remove about 15 minutes before serving, so that the brownies will not be too cold.

I’m sorry but I have no idea what kind of a mold you are forming the truffles in. Do you have a picture of what you used? I would love to make this! Thank you.
