|The Best Brownies|
The quest for the perfect brownie recipe is a pretty common long-time search for many a baker. I've tried many recipes over the past 30 years in the kitchen but this is definitely the best one I've made. If you are careful not to over bake them, you might just agree.
If you have chocoholics coming for dinner serve these warm from the oven with some warm chocolate ganache spilling over the top for the ultimate chocolate dessert.

Toothpick test will not work for this recipe but it will tell you if the middle is still liquid. Do not over bake these brownies or they will be dry rather than moist and chewy.
