No-bake triple chocolate brownies

This is an easy recipe for rich chocolate treats that are halfway between fudge bites and brownies. They have a pleasantly nutty flavour, with crisp bits of crushed cracker and chopped hazelnut mixed in — and you can put them together in just a few minutes.

1 c. (250 ml) graham cracker crumbs, from 8 to 10 graham crackers
½ c. (125 ml) finely chopped roasted hazelnuts
¼ c. (60 ml) cocoa powder
½ tsp. (2.5 ml) salt
¾ c. (180 ml) sweetened condensed milk
4 oz. (125 g) bittersweet chocolate, melted

Line an 8-inch (20-cm) square baking dish with two crossed strips of parchment or wax paper, letting the long ends hang over the sides of the dish. Grease lightly with butter or baking spray.

In a large bowl, mix together the crackers, hazelnuts, cocoa and salt. Pour in the milk. Pour in the melted chocolate and stir firmly to thoroughly combine then scrape the mixture into the prepared pan. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap and press firmly into the pan. Chill for at least 1 hour, until firm enough to cut.

Lift the parchment paper to remove the brownies from the pan. Cut into small squares. They will be fudgy, but quite firm. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Makes about 16 small brownies.
