Macadamia Nut Mash Chocolate Brownies


250gr semi sweet chocolate     
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla essence
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups Macadamia mash
1/2 - 1 cup natural or roasted Macadamia nuts 


Preheat the oven to 160*C. Melt chocolate and butter gently over low heat in heavy-bottomed saucepan. Take pan off the heat and add sugar and vanilla. Let it cool a little. Beat the eggs into the pan with the Mash and nuts.  Pour into a 22cm square baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, by which time the top will have set but the mixture will still be gooey. Once cooler, cut carefully.
