My niece usually stays over every weekend as we work on orders. This time round, we finished our orders pretty early, so as we were lazing around in the bed, we ended up talking about desserts. She wanted fudgy brownies and obviously I had to make some for her. #trophyaunt
Another not-so-fun-fact about me is that I am not a brownie person. I mean I’m not even huge on chocolates. Obviously there are certain times when chocolate is a desperate need. “
Time of the month”.
Make me choose between a chocolate chip cookie and a shortbread, I’d rather go with the shortbread. Tell me to choose between that rich chocolate cake and a strawberry cake; I will go with the latter. I guess you got my point.
This brownie was really easy & quick to make and obviously it was decadent, fudgy, goey and rich; all at once! As we baked these brownies during the night time, I had a slice of it once it was out of the oven. I dunno what happened but somehow I ate another two slices the next day. I am just glad that I packed most of the brownies for my niece and her family. I mean how did i get this weak? *Wiping chocolate off the corners of my mouth*
