I love brownies. They are my go-to dessert when I need comfort in the form of chocolate. I do have a problem. I cannot pick a favorite brownie recipe. Maybe you can help me out. Here is what I know about brownies:
– Has to be fudgy.
– Not cakey.
– Has to have top flaky layer.
– No nuts.
– Has to exude chocolate.
With that said, I rely on two recipes and have many more on my to-do list. The first one I’d like to share with you involves melted chocolate (as opposed to cocoa powder).
– Definitely fudgy.
– Definitely has the top flaky layer.
– Definitely chocolatey.
I loved every bite. It had a chew and soft enough to melt in my mouth. With that said, I think I’ll look to see if other recipes really pack more of a chocolate punch.
What’s your favorite brownie recipe?
