|Mr. C licking the bowl|
I LOVE brownies. Truly is there any better smell than brownies baking in the oven? That cocoa, vanilla and extra chocolate all melting together into a decadent dessert. I kind of cheat (just like my dad did when I was little) and call on Duncan Hines for a little help. Then we like to chunk up some extra chocolate in our house and throw that in.
I apologize profusely to all my English friends and family! I know Hershey's just doesn't cut it, but we had no Cadbury's in the house. I usually use Cadbury's dark chocolate or Ghirardelli in the brownies.
We simply stir in the extra chocolate and bake the brownies according to the packaging. John and Conor's favorite part is licking the bowl:
But can you blame them? I love that part, too! Once, the brownies have cooled we love to make brownie sundaes with the brownie on the bottom, topped with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Yum! Hope you try it in your home. It always brings back the best childhood memories for me!
