Melt the butter in a bowl placed over the simmering water.
Add chocolate and melt.
 
Gently stir butter and chocolate together.
Beat the extra butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat through.
Sift in flour; mix.

Add chocolate mixture to the flour, along with the nuts and cream; fold in with a spatula.
Spread mixture into the prepared tray and bake for approximately 40 – 50 minutes.
Check after 30 minutes, taking care not to over–brown.

While the brownies are cooling, make the icing.

Beat with a spoon until smooth and creamy.
Turn the brownies out from the tray and remove paper.
