Ah, so it’s (let me count…) five days before Christmas and you’re now thinking “you know what, I SHOULD make some Christmas cookies for a gift / that party / to put in my face.”

These brownies are, very literally, my personal brownie points. Because, as I’ve previously mentioned when making peanut butter choc chip cookies, I don’t like peanut butter.

Good question. Very good question.
Well. I said. (I hesitated here…should I lie?) I used custard powder. I’m not quite sure what else he thought I would have done. (more…)
