Decadent Fudgy Brownies

October 18, 2014 | No Comments


Welcome to week 40 of Reddit’s 52 weeks of cooking. This week’s theme is Screw-Ups Revisited. If you read my last post, Chocolate Snack Cake with Strawberry Jam, you will know that I have screwed up on brownies already this week. Thank goodness my screw up was scrumptious though, somehow that makes it less disappointing. Here is my second attempt at brownies. I have adapted America’s Test Kitchen Brownie recipe from last year.  They are truly moist, fudgy, chewy, super chocolaty and decadent. They are everything a brownie should strive to be.

These were super easy and quick to put together. They will fetch a great price at your children’s bake sale, are a welcome addition to a potluck, or housewarming party. I encourage you to add this to your files, as your go-to brownie recipe.
