We've been loving the pistachio kunafa chocolate seen all over social media, but it got us thinking... how could we make this just that little bit better... and well, this recipe won't disappoint. Oozing with crispy, creamy pistachio butter, this triple chocolate brownie makes for the naughtiest dessert.


First things first, preheat your oven to 180°c, and line a 8x8 inch baking tin with parchment and oil spray/butter.

After this, we'll start with the pistachio butter. Pour all our kernels into a food processor, with a couple tablespoons of oil, and start blitzing. Leave to blitz for about 7-10 minutes, until the mixture naturally turns into a paste.

For the brownie batter, mix al the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, and separately, place a heat-proof bowl over a double boiler, and melt the butter and chocolate. Once fully melted, mix in the sugar, and then the eggs one at a time, until the mixture is smooth and shiny.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet along with the vanilla and chocolate chunks, and mix till just combined (do not over mix).

Pour out half the batter into the baking tin, and spoon on the pistachio filling. Spread out and pour the rest of the batter over the layer of pistachio butter, and pop into the oven for 45 minutes.

The hardest part is letting this cool for about 30 minutes, before cutting into 9 pieces and tucking in!
