I will never make another brownie recipe again. O.k. maybe I will, I'm always trying different recipes.....but honestly this one is THEE winner so far. I have tried maybe 20 or 30 brownie recipes over the years...liked them all...but this one definitely is tops in my book. I loved how moist and fudgy it was, and the icing was so smooth and fudgy, too.
I made these for Valentines Day, so I added a few M&M's on top.
I took my time, enjoying each bite of every brownie. I only made half a recipe and then of course I had to share half of that with Brent. And there's no cheating with him...he keeps track!
But next time....I'll be making a full batch!
