small bowl, combine flour and salt; set aside. with an electric mixer on 
medium speed, beat eggs in large bowl for 2 minutes or until light and 
frothy. gradually beat in sugar; beat in vanilla. fold in melted 
bittersweet chocolate mixture but don't incorporate it completely. fold in 
flour mixture until not quite incorporated. add hazelnuts, milk chocolate 
and white chocolate; fold in until just well blended. transfer batter to 
lightly greased 8-inch (20 cm) square baking pan; smooth top. 
 
bake at 350 f (180 c) for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is dry but a 
toothpick inserted in centre emerges with some traces of melted chocolate 
and moist crumbs. place pan on wire rack and run a very thin sharp knife 
around outside edge of brownie to loosen from side of pan; cool 
completely. don't try to cut brownies when warm. cover pan with plastic 
wrap and store at cool room temperature.

c) for 12 minutes or until slightly set. centres will still be soft. let
