We are all chocolate lovers in my family, are you?

We probably prefer dark chocolate to milk, and these are my favourite brownies to make as they are chewy, fudgey and delicious. You can whip them up quickly when friends are heading over or you need a fast sweet treat for dessert; warm with ice-cream.
