dark chocolate gingerbread brownies

 dark chocolate gingerbread brownies
200g butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups dark brown sugar
100g dark cooking chocolate (about half a big block)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup plain flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup dark cooking chocolate chunks (or melts or chips)

Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a standard slice tin with baking paper. Over a very low heat melt butter, dark chocolate and cocoa gently in saucepan. When well combined and smelling all chocolate like, stir in the dark brown sugar and vanilla. Take off heat, add spices and stir well.

Sift in flour and mix well. Add in the eggs and beat on med/high for 2 minutes. Add dark chocolate chunks and stir through.

Pour into lined slice tin and bake 20-25 minutes. You'll know it's done when the top slightly cracks and a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Sprinkle with icing sugar for easy prettiness if needed.
