Nutty Chocolate Bars

Today I want to share a family recipe from a dearest friend of mine. These chocolate bars are so so good you will definitely go for seconds. Or thirds. Or fours.

You need:

140 grams sugar
140 grams butter
2 tea spoons baking powder
4 eggs, divided
70 grams walnuts, roughly chopped
70 grams chocolate of choice, roughly chopped
100 grams flour

4 table spoons jam of choice (apricot works best for me)

Chocolate ganache
300 millilitres cream 
300 grams chocolate
Put the cream in a small saucepan and heat it until little bubbles start to form on the edge. Set aside and add chocolate. Let sit for two minutes, then stir until chocolate is fully incorporated.

Cream together sugar and butter, gradually add the flour and baking powder. Mix well, then add the egg yolks and mix again. Next add the meringue from the egg whites. Mix and add the nuts and chocolate. Pour the batter in a greased baking tin and bake for 20 minutes on 190○C. When baked, let cool and spread the jam on top. Lastly, pour some chocolate ganache on top and decorate with colored sprinkles.
