Recipe : Makes 12 Buns

For the topping :

100g/4oz Brazil Nuts

100g/4oz Unsalted Butter – melted

75g/3oz Dark Brown Sugar

For the Buns :

1 Packet 450g/1lb All Butter Puff Pastry – thawed if frozen.

1tbsp Melted Butter

1/2 tsp Freshly Grated Nutmeg

100g/4oz Dark Brown Sugar

225g/8oz Milk Chocolate Chips

100g/4oz Brazil Nuts

Method :

Preheat the oven to 200C (185C fan).

You will need a deep muffin/cupcake tin to bake these buns in. No pre-greasing of the tin is required.

The topping of these Chocolate Chunk Brazil Nut Buns is actually placed in the bottom of the muffin tin. When the buns are turned out, the bottom becomes the top!!!

For the topping mix the melted butter and sugar together. Add in the roughly chopped Brazil nuts.

The roughly chopped Brazil nuts, on the left are for the topping. The finer chopped nuts, on the right, are for inside the buns.

Now for the buns :

My package of puff pastry came in 2 blocks. If you have 1 block, roll out the pastry to twice the width.

One half of the pastry block. Placed on a floured surface.

Roll out the pastry to 26cm/10″ wide by 29cm/11″ long.

Brush the rolled out pastry with melted butter.

Grate the nutmeg directly over the buttered pastry. If using ground nutmeg, sprinkle evenly over the pastry.

Freshly grated nutmeg is sooo much better if you have it.

Sprinkle first the sugar, then the chocolate chips and chopped Brazil nuts evenly over the pastry (only use half of the amounts if rolling out half of the pastry, as I have).

An even layer of sugar, chocolate and nuts spread over the rolled pastry.

Divide each half into 3 (for half a pastry block), or 6 if you've rolled out the entire 450g pastry block.
