dark chocolate brownies with white chocolate & sea salt

Don’t you love old faithful recipes? This is a guaranteed moist, fudgy extra rich and dark chocolate brownie with white chocolate chunks and a (newly added to the recipe) sprinkling of sea salt – phwaor. They are also ridiculously easy and quick to make. These would be great to make for a chocolate loving mother this weekend, and are the ideal treat to make for cake stands (bake sales), weekend-away-with-friends gifts and they’re pretty damn good at the end of a dinner party too. They are luscious, deep, fat brownies, so don’t cut them too big…besides you can always have two right?! Hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day this weekend – stay warm and dry (New Zealand winter here) and wishing youย happyย times with loved ones!
