These tempting chocolate brownies contain dates for natural sweetness and a very small amount of plain chocolate is grated over the top. Any type of smooth or crunchy nut butter can be used in this recipe. 70-90% dark chocolate is best for grating over the top. For a special treat the brownies could be reheated and served with fresh cream.
