While I’m on the plane to sunny San Francisco, my friend, Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife offered to share her incredible Ultimate Chocolate Brownies recipe. Although Jo-Lynne has never made these brownies for me (ahem!) her recipe is very, very similar to the double chocolate brownies that I make (and I can attest that they are so much better than brownies from a box!).
This is seriously the best brownie recipe ever. And I can say that because I really can’t take credit. It came in a Pillsbury dessert recipe cookbook I received as a wedding present and quickly became a family favorite. I’ve been making it for 17 years. And yes, that makes me officially old. They are delicious because it is full of butter and eggs — as all brownies should be!
This recipe makes a rich, dense, gooey brownie. If you like a cakey brownie, these aren’t for you. My kids love these — and their friends do too. They have become somewhat of a legend around these parts. They’re also super easy to make — so easy that I’ve taught my kids to make them!! Try them and see for yourself!
