Christmas treats should be fun to make and tasty to eat! If you’re sick of cooking the same thing each year and want a yummy alternative to traditional pudding or pavlova, try these delicious Gooey Chocolate Brownies with Frankincense Essential Oil for something extra special this Christmas!

These brownies are a real treat! They are great on their own or make a wonderfully impressive dessert served topped with ice cream, a few toasted nuts or berries and a little drizzle of chocolate and/or raspberry sauce. You can also freeze some of them to eat later, but they are so good I never end up freezing them.

TIP These brownies are supposed to be a little gooey in the middle so don’t over bake them. The frankincense essential oil gives them a delightful flavour twist which I really enjoy, however you can use others oils, if you prefer. Here are a few suggestions to try; a few drops of orange oil, 1 drop of lavender oil or 1 – 2 drops of cardamom oil.
