Food Friday - Chocolate and Chilli Brownies

This week's Food Friday recipe came from Janine Finch's kitchen in Leicester Forest East.

Gooey Chocolate chilli brownie's with juicy cranberries:

When teatime's or the evenings begin to get chilly, this is great to have with a cup of Coffee or tea. I have been making this for years and always gives me a nice warm, fuzzy feeling after eating it.
A super, easy, sweet treat to serve whatever the occasion;may it be friends around for the Rugby or even an Autumn BBQ, this will go great after Hot dogs, or an autumnal one pot wonder.
