Homemade brownies knock the boots off anything from a box. Give these Triple Chewy Fudgy Brownies a try, and you’ll never look back.
I know it’s hard to beat the ease of boxed brownie mixes. I used to be a die hard Ghriradelli fan, and if a sister makes me a plate of them, I won’t turn ’em down.
I also know many hail Betty or Duncan as their brownie heroes. This is a judgment free zone, and all brownie eaters deserve a cyberhug. Plus, brownies sport a free spirit. Some are cakey. Some are fudgy. Others rest under globs of ice cream or ganache.
There’s a time and place for all walks of brownies, but today we’re noshing on the chewiest, fudgiest, chocolatiest brownies ever loved in our home.
I’m pretty much a Plain Jane when it comes to sweets. I don’t need lots of frills or add-ins for brownies. (Yet I repeat: I certainly won’t turn down dressed up brownies if you offered me some, because that would be crazy.)
I like my brownies uber chocolatey, chewy, and very fudgy. A bit of gooey is good. Nothing else except maybe powdered sugar sprinkled on for vanity’s sake.
And always a thin layer of crispy, crackly exterior on top. Like so…
I’ve busted out my baking moves on many a brownie recipe in my lifetime, and I’ll have to say this recipe is always the hands down winner.
Nothing artificial, no funky ingredients, no box-y taste. There’s such a thing.
Go for it. Do a blind taste test for a brownie showdown. It’s wonderfully fun and nobody will complain about having to try allthosebrownies.
I promise you’ll immediately taste the difference between homemade vs. boxed in a tummybeat.
And what about all the leftover boxed brownies…what to do with those?
Well, you could always pour on the globs of ice cream and syrup.
These homemade ones won’t need it. #keepitreal (wink) 😉
