Now these brownies. These are the bee’s knees. I LOVE brownies. They are my favorite all time dessert (tied with ice cream and even better with ice cream). These are the BEST brownies I have ever had. Seriously. And I’ve had a lot of brownies.
I have to give my sister Elizabeth credit for finding these. When I’m looking on Pinterest, the title fudgey chocolate chunk brownies doesn’t stick out to me. I’m looking for something different, something unique. What one person calls fudgey may not be fudgey to me. But Elizabeth saw they had potential and Elizabeth is quite the cook. Whenever she comes home from college she always has something yummy and delicious she’s just made. (Now that I type this I realize it was her twin Lisa who made these brownies when they last were home.) Nonetheless, besides being a great cook she is also a fantastic photographer. She would have a way better blog than me if she decided to blog. If only she lived with us, then we could blog together!
I find it funny, Elizabeth and me. I dare say we are adventurous and good cooks. Both of those qualities which I believe are passed down from our mom. However, my mom has told me in the past that she doesn’t think she’s a good cook, but all of us would beg to differ. Not only is she a good cook but she prepared a lot of unique meals for us growing up. Quiche, cabbage rolls, and ham wrapped broccoli are just a few. Here’s to you mom for making us who we are!
Anyway, I hope you use this recipe to celebrate Easter because it sure brings rejoicing! Happy Easter! He is Risen!
