Our Favorite Brownies9:09 AM
Brandon's favorite dessert is anything chocolate. I can with about 99% accuracy tell you what dessert he's going to pick no matter where we are. When we were first dating, our go-to were those add-water and microwave brownies with vanilla ice cream. We've certainly moved up in the world - from the dessert and where we make them (just thinking about that fraternity kitchen now makes me cringe).
In our quest for the perfect chocolate dessert/brownie, I turned to my favorite, Deb of Smitten Kitchen fame. When she deemed these HER favorite brownies, I knew we were on to something. These are now my go-to dessert to make. They're quick, easy, don't call for too many ingredients, and are so good. I have a double batch sitting beside me as I type for our work pot luck today. And they smell soooo good.
I thought today would be a good day to share these in case any of y'all were struggling with last minute ideas of what to bring or make for Thanksgiving dessert. Pumpkin pie will always be a staple, but everyone always needs a little bit of chocolate too. The only difference in homemade brownies verse the box variety is that you have to melt the butter and sugar together - after that, it's just mixing!
