I was having a major chocolate craving the other day so I just had to scour the pantry to see what I could come up with. Luckily I keep plenty of baking supplies in back stock so I don’t have to run to the store like a mad woman. We all know what we women can be like if we want some darn chocolate and we don’t have any. Watch out!
This brownie recipe is one of my favorites. I’ve been making versions of this brownie since I was in high school. I won’t mention how long ago that was though! 🙁 The brownies turn out super soft and moist. I love adding frosting to the top but hubby says that makes them cake and not brownies. Sigh. We seem to be always opposite on everything food!
