Single Serving Chestnut Brownie

Hi guys! If you are want a good chocolate dessert, make this single serving chestnut brownie!

I just want to let you know that this will be a quick post because… well life is picking up pace! I’m sorry about the brevity, but this recipe is another staple when it comes to me craving chocolate. 🙂

This brownie is so thick and fudgy it almost feels sinful! Eat this with some ice cream or just by itself because it has so much flavor. I added some chestnuts on top to cut the richness of the chocolate and give it a little color. If you don’t like chestnuts, feel free to leave it out.

Looking at the ingredients, they are not that complex. They are also pretty nice in that a little more or less of something will not drastically change the result.

For the applesauce, I just used my recipe. It’s the easiest way to make it on your own (literally one ingredient: apples).

Then, for the chocolate, I used one bar of Eating Evolved Midnight Dark Chocolate. It works really well in this recipe because it melts beautifully and it does not have any stabilizers that could mess with the texture.

The thing I love about this recipe is that it is single serving. This means you could make this recipe at anytime and have your own brownie straight out of the oven. It’s awesome!
