Ultimate Chocolate Brownies

The first time we made this recipe we were inspired by the Green & Black’s chocolate brownies recipe from their recipe book years back. For us, we think baking with good quality chocolate is important for both flavour and texture. And choosing fairtrade chocolate for your chocolate brownies recipe is a great way to give back.
