Very very easy to make and absolutely delicious! They got even better after a couple of days in the fridge. Next time I am going to add cherries for some further depth to the flavour! - 22 Aug 2010


Altered ingredient amounts. I haven't tried it yet but I am certain that cherries would make these brownies even better. You could add hazelnuts to the mix also or even dried cranberries at Christmas time! - 22 Aug 2010
