Eggless No Bake Biscuit Brownies

There are many comfort foods, but among them the one that sits that on top is chocolate.
Nothing like it , be it a cup of hot steaming chocolate milk or a deliciously sinful brownie.
And if there is no whisking ,greasing and baking involved in making one? There is nothing to beat that then.
This is one such recipe I found in Edible garden and I just couldn't resist.
It was very easy and promises to live up to any chocoholics aspirations...
I followed her instructions to the tee.
Only as i did not have any hazelnuts (or know where to get them) ,I used cachewnuts.

They look like chunky rocky roads.

20-25 Marie biscuits
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup roasted nut of choice
2 tsp sugar
1/2 of a 400gm tin condensed milk

How I Made It:

1. Break the biscuits into fours and powder coarsely. I put the biscuits in a ziplock bag and pounded them with a roller. (Works well a therapy too :) )
3. Add the cocoa powder to this and mix well.
4. Add the sugar to this mixture and mix again. If you prefer mildly sweet brownies, you can omit this but I found the sweetness level perfect with 2 tsp sugar.
5. Dry-roast any nut of choice and let it cool.Roughly 1/4 cup should do.
6. Chop it up coarsely and add to the mixture. Mix well.
7. Add half a tin of condensed milk to this mixture. Feel free to lick up the remaining condensed milk sticking to the tin!
8. Mix well with a sturdy spoon. I would advice against using a whisk at this stage because the mixture will be very very thick and refuse to cooperate. Show it who's boss! Mix well until all the powdery bits are combined with the wet ingredients.
9. Line a plate, pie dish, or baking tray with butter paper (or just great with some butter) and transfer the mixture to it. Press firmly with wet fingertips until the mixture is uniformly spread.
10. Refrigerate atleast for 4 hours or overnight if possible else you might get more fudgy brownies that won't hold its shape when you cut it. 
If you refrigerate longer, then they can be cut into perfect squares and taste delicious.

Perfect with some Vanilla Ice Cream as well. Drizzle in some Dulce De Leche and You're in heaven!!
