Walnut Chocolate Squares

Walnut chocolate squares

Nuttylicious walnut chocolate square cake bars – they are nutty and very chocolaty! I actually made them last week, on the International Chocolate Day observed on the 7th of July. Okay my post is a few days late but it’s never too late to celebrate chocolate!!

On Facebook I asked about your favourite chocolate treats and the answers included brownies, chocolate with peanut butter and ice cream – yummy, yummy, yummy!! Everything is better with chocolate, isn’t it?

I love to work with chocolate, incorporating it into batters and doughs, making ganaches, reshaping it and making pralines. You might have noticed that I tend to use dark chocolate in my recipes ( and occasionally white chocolate). If you aren’t a fan of dark chocolate and prefer a sweeter taste, you can always use milk chocolate instead.

These walnut chocolate squares are cocoa walnut cake topped with semisweet dark chocolate, walnuts and chocolate sprinkes. The chocolate dries faster when refrigerated and it gives it a nice crunch over a soft cake. A square for dessert or with your afternoon coffee/tea is perfect sweet TREAT!
