  • 60g pecans, roughly chopped
  • 100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped

  2. Add the dark chocolate, butter, cocoa powder and rosemary to a heatproof bowl and set it over a pan of simmering water, stirring until it all melts.
  3. Remove from the heat and set the chocolate mixture aside.
  4. Add the dark muscovado and golden caster sugar to a separate bowl. Mix in the eggs until just combined. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture and stir until completely smooth, then mix in the cooled espresso.
