Brownies from Scratch Recipe

Brownies Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good brownie? I mean, seriously. Chocolate. Sweet. Dessert. Top with powdered sugar and we have a winner! I love these brownies from scratch, no worries about what they put in that boxed stuff, and they are made from ingredients that I always have on hand. Sometimes we are out of the chocolate chips, but only if I eat them the chocolate chip gnomes eat them all!
