Recipe Notes

You can drizzle melted dark chocolate on top for that extra decadent taste.

In a small saucepan boil some water and place a heatproof bowl on top, making sure it sits above the water nicely. Add roughly 70g of dark chocolate in the bowl and stir until chocolate melts.

Then just drizzle melted chocolate diagonally across the brownies.
