Oh, the holidays filled with lots of joy and good cheer, right? Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. All the hustle and bustle leaves this introvert exhausted, and wanting to hide in a corner – with a big pan of my favorite brownies to recharge. I love you all, but sometimes I need to love you at a safe distance…..true story. If you can somehow relate to this, know you are not alone. Even if you do not relate, and you just like brownies, please continue reading.
Brownies seem to make everything right – at least in my world. OK…..that’s not entirely accurate, because what makes me happiest is seeing those I love happy. This recipe is a variation of my decadent fudgy brownies recipe. It never fails to put a smile on people’s faces as is, but with it being such a versatile recipe – the possibilities are endless. I recently transformed it into s’mores brownies to pay homage to my family’s love of camping. Please feel free to create your own combinations to suit your tastes. Happy Baking!
