Sometimes you just need a quick chocolate fix. You have neither the time, nor the inclination to be faffing around in the kitchen when you have a million and one things going on. This has been one of those weeks. Nothing hugely dramatic has been going on, I have just been busy and tend to be a bit melodramatic. It’s not that I can’t multi task, it’s that I really don’t like not fully giving something my full and undivided attention. Which is what makes this recipe one of my all time favourites.
One bowl brownies, also known as 3 ingredient brownies. Whatever you decide to call them, this is the ULTIMATE speedy comfort food recipe. It’s great for a multitude of reasons. Firstly… Err who doesn’t love brownies? Secondly it makes my super easy condense milk cake recipe look like a flamed baked alaska.

It is also great because you can change one ingredient depending on your mood and make lots of different combinations. It calls for a chocolate spread, which in my case more often than not is Nutella. But this can be a plain chocolate spread, a chocolate orange spread, a white chocolate spread… Anything your heart desires. In this instance I used a plain chocolate spread I had in the cupboard because we had run out of Nutella, but as I aforementioned your choice of chocolate spread it entirely up to you. What you’ll love even more is that the recipe is not methodically complicated, you can’t get much easier then… “mix everything up in one bowl”. So without further ado…
