Is there anything more beautiful than a perfectly fudgy brownie? It combines the best part of cake and pure chocolate together, and it forms something so craveable, I wish it was socially acceptable to have one with every meal. I mean, really, doesn’t a breakfast consisting of a big bowl of brownie pieces swimming in vanilla milk sound incredible?
Well, the fastest way to make my brownie obsessions come true is by starting with the perfect recipe, and this is the one. The resulting brownies are so chocolaty, moist, chewy, and fudgy… exactly what I look for in a brownie. But, if you prefer them more cake-like, just cook them a little longer or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Plus, these are so easy to make, and if you’re like me, you probably have the ingredients at home. Never be dependent on boxed brownie mix again – especially when making it from scratch is almost as easy and 100% yummier.
