Chocolate Brownies

Today is a bit of a sad day for me – my brother and his family have set off on the final leg of their journey to set up a new life in Adelaide – 10,000 miles away.

On one hand I am so excited for them but on the other it feels like such a long distance to be separated. Chocolate Brownies

In my heart I know than we have many lovely holidays to look forward to both over here and in Australia but that doesn’t help how I feel in the short term.

What’s a girl to do when feeling down – get in the kitchen of course and what better ingredient to cook with than lovely, luscious chocolate.

Chocolate Brownies

 These chocolate brownies are so moist and fudgy – a perfect tea time treat or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious dessert.
