These brownies are given a crunch with the addition of roasted pumpkin seeds. Adam Stokes recommends serving these brownies warm and partnering with cream or ice cream to provide a luxurious chocolate lovers dessert

Method

Toast the pumpkin seeds on a baking tray for 5 minutes at 200˚C/gas mark 6, set aside to cool
2.

4.
