Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a 19cm x 29cm cake tin and line the base and sides with greased baking paper so the paper sticks out 2 cm above the rim of the cake tin.
Brownies Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the chocolate and heat slowly without bringing the mixture to boil. Stir continuously. Add the sugar and remove from the heat. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and leave to cool slightly. Stir in the eggs one by one then add the vanilla extract, flour, chocolate chips, cream and nuts. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes. Cover the tin with aluminium foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool completely in the tin and cut into small squares.
Icing Whisk the egg white until stiff peaks begin to form. Stir in the chocolate and cocoa powder and mix well. Add just enough icing sugar to make a stiff icing that will make peaks. Cover the brownies with the icing and make tiny peaks using a teaspoon. Dust with gold dust.
