You are in for a treat today. It's cold and all I want to do is eat chocolate, so I am making a grandioso assumption that you are the same. Hence, I am bringing you a recipe for Rich Chocolate Brownies by Alice Nicholls from The Whole Daily. It's rich, it's fudgey, it's chewy and here is the best bit - it's made using really simple ingredients, is gluten free and is just pure brownie love.
