Extra Fudgy Ricotta Brownies

Ah! Love these brownies! They look and sound amazing. I’m with you on the not too sweet front. When I first became a pastry chef I developed quite a keen taste and tolerance for sugar, but now that I’m a lot more well rounded the aim is to try and use less sugar and still have it taste stunning. Well… you did it! Gorgeous recipe!
