These brownies are gooey, sticky, spicey and chocolatey. What else could you ask for from a chocolate sweet treat? Sticky toffee pudding is a classic dessert, and this brownie spin-off also goes down a treat when served with whipped ice cream. What makes these brownies extra special is not only the toffee taste but the added mixed spice, which adds that extra kick and also the chopped taste to add to the gooey taste. We guarantee this will be a thumbs up dessert from all the family.
