Rich Chocolate Brownies

These brownies are packed with both vegan milk and plain chocolate instead of adding sugar to the mixture. Serve them in small squares as they are very rich. When buying plain chocolate, bear in mind that the higher the percentage of cocoa solids, the higher the quality of the chocolate, and the less sugar it contains. The best vegan quality has 💯 percent cocoa solids.
