Chocolate Walnut Raisin Brownies with Chocolate Fig Sauce

I love brownies....just can't say no to them. The best part is they are so easy to make. These are crunchy yummy brownies with bits of raisin here and there.


Shabs of  Home Cooked and Loved  sent me this scrumptious recipe, modified it a bit by adding raisins. The chocolate fig sauce goes well as a topping for this brownie.
There's something about brownies which makes me smile . Baking sure has a feel good effect !
