Chocolate Hot Cross Buns

It’s that time of the year when the weather gets cooler (well, in Melbourne), the days get shorter and the chocolate shortage is non-existent; it’s Easter!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

  Over the weekend I was craving something chocolatey (surprise, surprise) and something with peanut butter (again, another surprise). After devouring a not-so-healthy brownie after dinner with the girls during the week – which was delicious – I wanted to recreate something similar. Sometimes I love eating unhealthy desserts to give me inspiration and that’s exactly what that brownie did… These peanut butter chocolate swirl brownies are the perfect treat when…
