Chocolate Brownies

Most women get cravings for all kinds of weird food when they are pregnant. I seem to have the opposite reaction - and go off the things that I normally crave.

I'm off chocolate at the moment, even my mum's chocolate brownies (which ordinarily I love).

Anyway, for those of you who are not off chocolate, here's the recipe. I look forward to March when my taste buds will hopefully return to normal.
