Chocolate and Pecan Brownies

These brownies are the best I've ever made, and I stumbled upon the recipe by chance, as I wanted to use up the pecans I had left after making Nigella's Christmas Cake.  (and yes I know it's February now, but it seems as good a time as any to blog about brownies).

I made these on Christmas Day, using my shiny new KitchenAid, which is without doubt one of the best Christmas presents I have ever received.

I made enough for us all on the day, and to take with us to the rest of the family on Boxing Day.  Every single person in the family liked them (ages 4 to 64) which was very gratifying, but did mean that I didn't get to eat quite as many of them as I would have liked.

The recipe I used was a Sophie Grigson one, and can be found here.  Since one of my new year's resolutions was to give up refined sugar, I'm not planning on eating any more of these myself in the near future, but I may make some for everyone else to eat, seeing as they were so popular.
