Little Box Brownie: Chocolate Pudding for two

Chocolate Pudding for two

The winter months are slowly creeping in on us down here in Melbourne. I love winter time, I know most people find winter dull, and can't wait for summer, but I think winter is snug and beautiful. That's why two years ago I packed up and left Brisbane, to come to Melbourne so I could enjoy the seasons. I love coming in from the cold to a nice warm house. I would love to have a roaring, crackling fire to come home to, it seems such a romantic notion. My little heater will have to do for now. One day though, I'll sit near a roaring fire eating this next recipe. Like a scene from a movie, a girl can dream!! Nom nom nom :)
