You can sprinkle some pecan nuts on top or mix it onto the batter


Heat the cream and chocolate together in a bowl over steam taking care to overheat stirring constantly. Alternatively, you can heat the cream separately and pour it over the chocolate stirring it to melt the chocolate into the cream. 


Bake the brownies in a preheated oven checking it after 20 minutes to see if a knife comes out clean when tested. Bake until the knife comes out clean. This might take longer than 20 minutes, but you dont want to over bake it drying it out, so, best to start checking it after 20 minutes.


Tip the brownies unto a plate and pour the melted chocolate mixture the hot brownies and enjoy!
