I won’t take credit for this recipe. It’s my go-to brownie recipe after accidentally stumbling upon it on a can of cocoa a few years ago in New Zealand.
I think it’s worth publishing here because I lost it once and it took me ages to track it down online, after the brand was a) no longer displaying the recipe and b) wasn’t available in the shops around where I was anyway.

It’s not healthy, but they are lovely and chocolately and stodgy. And there are certain times when healthy eating and diets just need to go out of the window. These are highly recommended for those times x
