We don’t know about you, but we like our brownies gooey and rich. The soggier the better they match our vanilla and liquorice root Poorter. That’s also why we use loads of muscovado sugar in our chocolate delights. This unrefined inside of sugar cane is on sale at most exotic specialty shops. It has a natural spicy liquorice flavour and is a bit healthier for you than regular sugar.

If you’re like us, you’ll like them just like this. Are you ready to put a bit of un-guilty in your pleasure?
