Rich Chocolate & Coffee Brownies
Chocolate and Coffee are a match made in taste heaven and although I have multiple brownie recipes on this site, this one is a bit yum. You can replace the coffee in the ganache with Brew Choc which I actually did for the picture for a completely OTT chocolate result.
Just tell yourself that dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health and it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet, as you cut another piece. These are very rich, and should be consumed in great quantities! (Kidding, a small piece is more than enough!)
