You can't enjoy the chocolate bar with a cup of your favorite sweet chai tea. No, no. It is better to sit, relax, and pamper yourself with a nice warm cup of tea with chocolate ... brownies!

      I just may try this recipe. It seems simple enough. Never heard of vanilla powder, though. Would vanilla extract work in place of?
