Dark Chocolate Brownies

One of the first things that I baked really well, when I jumped on the baking wagon like all the home cooks and food bloggers was a Chocolate Brownie. Little did I realise that these brown beauties are easy to make, comforting as a food, simple in their looks yet so attractive and you can easily impress anyone with this recipe for sure. Now there's a little twist to this recipe - I have used Blackstrap molasses as a substitute for sugar. Blackstrap molasses is a by product of sugarcane's refining process. Unlike the normal sugar that we use in our day to day lives. Blackstrap has nutritional values, as it contains vital vitamins and minerals, such as Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and more.
