In desperate need of pick-me-up food? Than these brownies are the way to go. They are like boiled down chocolate condensed into an intense, juice piece of coma-inducing goodness. The cinnamon gives it a touch of christmas.
Warning – don’t eat if you need to work after eating this. These are like knock-out drugs and will need a cosy blanket and good book to take full effect.
