We were taking food to some friends who just had a baby and I wanted to take a dessert as well because I know I wanted dessert after I had my son! Hmm…and I still do! So, I decided to try out another brownie recipe because most people like brownies (just not me!). My hubby said they were good so I have to trust his judgment! He thought they might even be better than the previous ones.
I followed the recipe as stated. My only note is to make sure you do not scramble your eggs. Stir constantly as you put them in the hot chocolate mixture. I wasn’t going to transfer to another bowl but when I felt how hot everything was I decided I better just in case. Oh, and the color is a bit interesting as they come out because it’s not the typical dark brown it’s more of a light brown. I used milk chocolate morsels if that maybe had something to do with it?!...
