Homemade Super Rich Chocolate Brownies
Way, way back in April (seems like a lifetime ago doesn't it?) I spotted these brownies on Bake or Break-Adventures of an Amateur Baker. They looked so good and I knew that one day I would need them so I saved the recipe! I am so glad that I did because Tuesday was just that type of day. We had the girls home from school for a Hurricane Day (yep...up north you have snow days and here we have hurricane days???!!!). Luckily it was nothing to worry about but it sure was a long day!
Late in the afternoon, after we had polished of a bag of potato chips while playing a game of Monopoly Jr. (which I won), I decided we needed something with more sustenance than chips. I sought out my brownie recipe and went to give it a whirl!
These were so delicious. Rich, fudgy, chocolaty brownies. Now I am one of those strange people who has no preference as to how my brownie should be. Cakey or fudgey, who cares? Bring on the chocolate!!!
I made several changes to these because of what I had on hand. I had no semi sweet chocolate so I used some bittersweet chips that I had. I also used 1/2 cup of AP Flour and 1/4 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. I may have needed to add another egg after the flour swap but these were incredible!
