So here at Hogarth’s, we have decided to combine our two favourite ingredients – Gin and Chocolate to bring you a ginspirational Slimming World recipe for the tastiest brownies you’ll find.

Featuring ELY Dark Chocolate Gin, these gorgeous and delicious treats come in at 3 syns per brownie so there’s no need to feel guilty after snacking on these gintastic chocolatey pieces of goodness.

Often enjoyed neat, ELY Dark Chocolate Gin is an experience for all. This dry gin is unsweetened but provides a beautiful cocoa bitterness that would tantalise the taste buds of any chocolate lover.
