This brownie recipe is delicious. So much so, that certain family members have been known to “fight” over them. And my little one waits somewhat patiently for them to cool so she can dig in. If you love chocolate, and brownies, this recipe is for you! They turn out cakey and fudgy and are a perfect dessert. The recipe is easy to put together, and makes about 24 brownies in a 9×13 inch pan. They’re great as a quick dessert at home, or to bring along to a family dinner or pot luck.
