Dark chocolate brownies with warm holiday spices! You can frost the baked and cooled brownies with dark chocolate and sprinkle flaked almonds on top, if you prefer. Recipe adapted from a Dr.Oetker leaflet recipe.

Was most happy to make these brownies especially with all the dark chocolate involved, including the dark chocolate frosting & used! Made it even more winter-festive by using some red, green & white sprinkles over the top (Just my way of getting ready for the winter holidays!), & that was very nice, indeed! Thanks, much, for some great tasting brownies! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
