Double Chocolate Custard Cream Filled Brownies

Double Chocolate & Cream Brownies

Dark chocolate brownies with white chocolate chunks and a custard cream filling ~

These brownies are definitely not the most photogenic and I so nearly didn’t post them because of it. In the end though the taste won me over and I decided they were too yummy not to share!  The brownies have a really rich dark chocolate taste, a fudgey texture, white chocolate chunks and a creamy custard filling.
