Basic Brownies – You probably have everything you need to make these chocolaty treats!
I have to admit something to you, my 17 year old son is the brownie maker at our house. He loves to make these brownies – and asks to make them every so often. This Basic Brownies recipe is one of the very first recipes I got when I moved out on my own. It’s been my go-to brownie recipe for – *ahem – I can’t believe I’m saying this* – over 20 years!
The great thing about this recipe is that it uses pantry staples – so you probably already have everything on hand. I love that these cook up so thick and fudge-y! Although we usually enjoy them just plain like this – sometimes, we add mini M&M’s, or add a thick layer of chocolatey frosting or doctor them up some other way.
