    This was such a quick an easy recipe to follow. I swapped the walnuts for chocolate chips an they went down a treat with my girls  -  31 Oct 2016


    Loved this recipe! I'm very new to baking and this was my first ever attempt at making Brownies, so thank you for the recipe! I tweaked it a little by adding chocolate chips instead of walnuts and also melting some duo white and milk chocolate spread over the top. It has turned out extremely moist and rich and just so so yummy! Wish I could share a photo! ❤️  -  20 Mar 2018


    I left them in the oven for a very long time so the outsides were overdone but the inside was still the original mixture! I stuck to the recipe exactly, so I don't know what happened!  -  29 May 2017
