Easy Fudgy Chocolate Brownies

Brownies are one of every chocolate lover’s favorite desserts. Sure, you can buy a boxed mix, but did you know they are surprisingly easy to make from scratch? We think baking homemade brownies is easy as pie – except easier! All you need to get started is a few pantry staples, a mixing bowl and a hand mixer.

When the brownies are finished, you can serve them as-is for a lush, fudgy treat, or you can decorate them for a burst of holiday cheer. This will quickly become your go-to recipe for bake sales, potlucks, holiday parties and impromptu dessert cravings. Speaking of impromptu dessert cravings, I think it’s time to bake.
