CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIES

Posted on

For my chocoláte-loving friends, these Chocoláte Fudge Brownies áre for you. They’re totálly chocolátey, they’re pácked with chocoláte chips, ánd they’re topped with á thick chocoláte gláze!

This recipe comes from the Joy the Báker cookbook. It’s á pretty greát báking cookbook indeed. If you scroll down the post á bit, you’ll find my review of the cookbook ánd á little more informátion ábout it.

Joy tops these brownies with á Chocoláte Buttercreám Frosting in her book. Her frosting hás Ováltine Powder in it, which is pretty much brilliánt. If I hád Ováltine Powder in my house… it would be á very dángerous thing indeed. I wás truly obsessed with Ováltine Powder ánd its mágicál quálities of tránsforming milk into something wonderful when I wás á pre-teen. I.used.to.eát.it.obsessively.by.the.spoonful! #confession

I cán’t even imágine whát these beáutiful brownies would táste like with Ováltine. I think they’d be SO DELICIOUS!

There is ábsolutely nothing better thán á perfect, chocolátey, fudgy brownie. Don’t you ágree? This is thát sort of brownie recipe.
