This is without a doubt the most decadent brownie we’ve ever created - the kind that you only really need a small serving of to reach that ‘truly satisfied’ feeling (not that we actually stuck to that when it was in the kitchen right next to the office all day). And whether you’re team soft and gooey or dense and chewy, it fits the bill. Serve hot, for a rich, gooey brownie perfectly contrasted by the sharp zing of the sauce or leave it in the fridge overnight before tucking into the chewy brownie of your dreams the next day.
