GINGERBREAD CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

GIngerbread chocolate brownies

 

Hello SEPTEMBER!!!  Who can believe it, it seems only a few months ago I was taking down my Christmas Decorations now I’m ALREADY thinking about this year’s Halloween & Christmas Baking!!!

Speaking of baking wait till you meet my new Brownie Friends.  DO you LOVE Chocolate Brownies & Gingerbread?  Well get your Aprons on and the oven ready because you won’t be able to resist these Gingerbread  Chocolate Brownies.

These are rich, fudgy brownies (the way a brownie should be), wonderfully chocolicious but with the addition of those lovely gingerbread spices, you really get the taste of Christmas.

These indulgent Gingerbread Chocolate Brownies make the perfect festive gift. I firmly believe edible presents (especially chocolate ones) make the best Christmas presents.

Maybe Santa would like a Gingerbread Chocolate Brownie with his glass of Milk (Sherry lol) instead of a cookie this year?

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet and let the pictures do the talking. If only there was such a thing as “Wonka Vision” like in the Christmas Willy Wonka Film  – you could just put your hand in the computer screen and take the brownie.
