best brownies

IMG_1886Last Saturday I treated myself to the “chocolate brownie a-la-mode” pedicure at Spa in the Valley. It was divine! However, as a result, I was seriously jonse-ing for a real brownie when I got home, but I had no brownie mix in the house. And after this recipe, I don’t know that I will ever buy box brownies again! These were incredibly easy and quick to make and they came out delish. Thank Allrecipes. Enjoy!
