Hello you. Yes, you. I know you can’t take your eyes off me. I’m rich, warm and utterly irresistible, and I’m begging you to just take a bite…I’m certainly not a treat for the faint-hearted.

Dark Chocolate and Roasted Hazelnut Fudge Brownies

Dark Chocolate and Roasted Hazelnut Fudge Brownies Recipe One Perfect Mess 2

I’m going to keep this one simple. Here you will find an incredibly easy recipe for possibly the best brownie you will ever taste. Packed with dark chocolate, butter and hazelnut, these brownies are soft, fudgey, crumbly and incredibly moist.

Bake them for friends, family or yourself, and have fun!
