Gooey Fudge Brownies


Chewy and chocolatey…yes please! If you’re as much of a chocolate lover as we are, you will flip for these brownies. When we’ve got a little extra time, we skip the box mix and bake brownies from scratch. A little extra effort goes a long way, and this easy recipe has become a favorite in our chocolate-obsessed house.

We like to add a secret ingredient to our brownies: instant espresso powder. We’ve found that it brings out the chocolate flavor even more, but feel free to skip this step as it isn’t a necessary ingredient. And while these rich squares of gooey goodness are super delicious on their own, we like to top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or with strawberries and whipped cream, and maybe a drizzle of chocolate sauce too…a little extra chocolate is always a good thing! Give this brownie recipe a try – it’s a sure-fire cure for any serious chocolate cravings. Enjoy!
