I was introduced to this recipe by a club O2 member when we were away for the weekend doing an AROC Adventure Race. Everyone loved it so much that we convinced her to make it for us again the next night. The brownies are very rich but very tasty, oh and did I mention very bad for you! However, we are all allowed a little indulgence every now and then right!?

The brownies are great warm or cold and you can serve them with icecream if you have a real sweet tooth!
