I’ve made many a brownie in my time. They are excellent comfort food and a sure way to win anyone’s heart. Now you can add whatever you want to them once you’ve found the perfect brownie base. My favourite is the Hummingbird Bakery recipe. This requires good quality dark chocolate and relatively few ingredients (yay for our wallets!).
The best things I’ve added to my brownie mix in the past have been hazelnuts and different assortments of chopped up chocolate. I like to serve this with ice cream (coffee is a good shout) after dinner. I also like to wrap up a few brownies for packed lunches. Can’t beat a sneaky brownie during your lunch break.
If you ever need a good cry, I recommend this recipe and Bridget Jones’s Diary (the first film). Sorted.
