Here is a slab of joy that I’m smitten to share with you; I’ve re-incarnated Cadbury’s gift to the world in slice form, and it is destined to unite cherry ripe lovers and convert cherry ripe haters. Is there such a thing as a cherry ripe hater? What a sad soul. Let’s not dwell on such pitiful things, back to this swanky ol’ Cherry, Chocolate and Coconut slice!

Dark Chocolate and Roasted Hazelnut Fudge Brownies

Dark Chocolate and Roasted Hazelnut Fudge Brownies Recipe One Perfect Mess 2

I’m going to keep this one simple. Here you will find an incredibly easy recipe for possibly the best brownie you will ever taste. Packed with dark chocolate, butter and hazelnut, these brownies are soft, fudgey, crumbly and incredibly moist. I used a touch of almond meal and coconut essence to add a subtle depth of flavour, and have found that the recipe can easily be made gluten free by substituting regular plain flour for gluten free plain flour. Also, feel free to swap the hazelnuts for walnuts, macadamias, almonds, peanuts etc…but then again you can’t go past the perfection of chocolate and roasted hazelnuts. These are definitely best when served warm, your fork will slide right through that chocolately goodness, and each heavenly bite will literally melt in your mouth. Bake them for friends, family or yourself, and have fun!
