Do you love brownies as much as I do? Do you like to make them out of a box or by scratch? You can take a box mix and also add in some of the above extra ingredients. I enjoy baking from scratch so that’s what I do mostly, but I know there are some of you readers that are in a hurry or don’t have the right ingredients when you need them. But I suggest you try making these by scratch one time at least. Another fun pan to use is this Brownie pan. It lets you have end pieces on all four sides. They are like your own individual treat, perfectly like the next one. I know we all like the end pieces.
Enjoy your easy chocolate brownie recipe, and you can also top those off with whipping cream or ice cream.
