TWD - Chocolate and Walnut Bars


This week’s Tuesday with Dorie ( Dorie’s Cookies) recipe is Chocolate and Walnut Bars. This recipe is based on a Roman treat rather than the melt and mix brownie I thought it would  be.

There are quite a few steps to make these bars, including chopping and melting chocolate, blitzing walnuts, separating eggs and whipping the egg whites to stiff peaks, followed by making a chocolate glaze.

The end result is decadent and delicious. I didn’t have any cream, so instead of making Dorie’s ganache glaze, I made a glaze from chocolate, butter, glucose syrup and vegetable oil by Donna Hay. I think it worked pretty well as a substitute.

I only made a quarter of the  recipe, which was plenty for me. The full batch uses 8 eggs.

To see what everyone else made this week and what  they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

  1. Sounds delicious - love the sound of the glaze as I think I have some glucose syrup somewhere but never have cream

    1. Hi Johanna, I waste cream when I buy it, so I wasn’t buying ut for this. Let me know if you’d like the glaze recipe.
