A Chocolate and Mango Tango

A Chocolate and Mango Tango

Mango lovers will vouch for its lusciousness, lingering nectar-like after taste, and above all, its versatility. The grand fruit lends itself, and graciously so, to all manner of flavors and fares. It could be dunked in a sweet and spicy chutney base, or juiced up and slurried into mocktails. What you could also do with it, if you're left, by the end of the season like us, with a truckload of the king of fruits, is pair it with chocolate and whisk up a batch of gooey, gorgeous brownies. It's the kind of recipe that, just like the fruit, is malleable and lets you tinker and tussle until you have the perfect tango of tastes. Not that we endorse any other fruit in it, just yet. We're still relishing the last crumbs of this mangoey, chocolicious dessert..
