No Chocolate Fudgy Brownies

No Chocolate Fudgy Brownies

A last minute decision on Valentines Day to make something sweet (after my failed cake) resulted in me stumbling across this recipe.  No chocolate means you can usually make them with what’s in your cupboard and they’re super quick!  The texture is a bit like a pre-mix boxed brownie which is still really good, and for a fraction of the price so you really can’t complain.
