One Bowl Brownies, made from scratch, deep rich chocolate flavor, fudgy center. with a crisp, flaky top.

I believe things happen for a reason. The alarm doesn’t go off on time because the kids really want me to drive them to school and pick up breakfast on the way. I forget to pick up toilet paper at the store and then it turns out when I go back the next day, there’s a sale. It decides to rain all day so I’ll stay inside and  clean the house!

So I knew it was fate when I found 5, FIVE boxes of Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate in the back of my baking cabinet. I don’t even remember buying them. It must have been a good sale or something. I was in the mood for Brownies. On the back of the box was a recipe for One Bowl Brownies. It’s the same recipe I’ve used for years!

These brownies were meant to happen.  These may be my favorite brownie. A rich deep chocolate flavor. The fudgy center. The crisp, flaky top. And the edges, I always go for a corner. The edges are the perfect chewy, part cakey, part fudgy gooey that you want  a corner to be!
