Jamie Oliver's Chocolate Brownies

This is a recipe that Jack got from his Nintendo game " What's Cooking Jamie Oliver?". There are some great, easy to manage recipes on this game. These bronwies are just perfect for making with kids.

The boys all love to help and I find it easier to allocate each with their own job- to cut down on rows!!

Myself and the boys had planned to go on a picnic today however once we had the brownies and sandwiches made it had started to rain. We didn't let a little rain ruin our plans so we went as far as the nearest sheltered picnic area- luckily for us that's just Mount Temple.
