Double Chocolate Cranberry Brownies


Double Chocolate Cranberry Brownies

These happened by accident but my goodness I'm glad they did. I had a little bit of cranberry sauce leftover in a jar as well as half a packet of dried cranberries, so decided to develop this naughty chocolate brownie recipe full of festive flavour.

The brownies turned out moist and fudgy - helped by the cranberry sauce - and were gobbled up by hubby's work colleagues in minutes. The chopped nuts on top are optional but added a really lovely crunch. I'm going to be making some more for Boxing Day!
