RECIPE: Easter Chocolate Brownies For The Munchkins


What did you guys do over the long weekend?  I’m so over visiting family, friends and relatives during this time of the year –it’s either you come back severely broke or tired.


The weeks leading to the Easter weekend were hectic, I took advantage of the long weekend to unwind, reflect and go on a digital detox…well, sort of.  You can’t blame a sister for trying.

I found myself watching cartoons with my two-year-old niece.  Yup!  Y0u name them Sofia the first, Goldie & Bear and my favourite – The Lion Guard.  In-between all of that I found some time to bake chocolate brownies.  My niece calls them cakes. 🙂 Rich, dense and ultra yummy is what they are.   We enjoyed them with milk.
