Chilli Chocolate Brownies

Chilli Chocolate Brownies

Dark chocolate and chilli is an intriguing flavour combination that really shines in these deliciously fudgy brownies, and we’ve added a little cinnamon for an extra touch of spice. Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or flurries of whipped cream.
