Triple Fudge Brownies
In the midst of quarantining, everyone has found their own way to cope with the abundant free time that has been bestowed upon us. Mine evolved into baking – in particular brownies, arguably my favorite dessert. What started with finding the best box mix slowly evolved into trying recipes from scratch to find the perfect, fudgiest, gooiest, cakiest brownie recipe out there. With a few tweaks and additions to recipes, I created my own version of the greatest brownies ever.
These brownies are firm and cakey on the outside, but on the inside they are gooey, melty, chocolatey perfection. In fact, even sticking a toothpick in the center to check if these brownies are done will not work, as the center will always have a melty, chocolatey consistency. Not only are they quick and easy to prepare, they don’t contain any of the preservatives that box mixes have – instead the ingredients are real, whole, and most likely all sitting in your kitchen right now.
Try these brownies fresh out of the oven, with a scoop of ice cream, or after a long hard day of self-quarantining. However you choose to enjoy them, they will always maintain their rich, fudgy consistency and perfectly chocolate taste.Triple fudge browniesprint menu
