For this recipe, I've made these brownies rich, decadent and full of calories. So look away if you're on a diet!

These brownies are chewy and fudge like in texture on the inside whilst keeping that classic crisp outer as true brownies should be. The triple chocolate consists of cocoa powder, rich dark chocolate, and luxurious drinking chocolate.

The addition of espresso coffee brings out the flavor of the chocolate. You can't taste the coffee, it is simply used to enrich the chocolate flavor.

The added pecans makes for a lovely crunchy texture and with every bite, you certainly go to brownie heaven!

This recipe makes 24 slices. I have made the slices small because they really are rich, but of course, if you want larger slices, feel free to slice your bake into 9 or 12 slices.

Serve these brownies cold as they are or warm with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or ice cream. They really are delicious!

They're great to take to friends or give as gifts over the holiday period. Pop them in a nice airtight container and wrap in some lovely Christmas decorated paper. Your friends will love you!
