Rich, gooey and fudgy, nothing beats a chocolate brownie, and this festive variation is perfect for an afternoon treat or easy dinner party dessert. They are a lot quicker to make than a cake, and look delicious piled up on a plate with a seasonal dusting of icing sugar snow. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled too
