Yummy is all I can say about the recipe that follows. I am actually as you all know a cupcake makers, but I believe I’m not to shabby in other areas in the kitchen. These brownies are very renowned in my circle of friends, so I decided to share them with you all.
The only warning I give with these brownies...is that you must love chocolate, and lots of it, and butter, sugar.
8 big brownies/ 12-15 smaller brownies
280g castor sugar
200g brown sugar
125g plain chocolate
