Fudgy Milk Chocolate Brownies

The best homemade brownies at The Dessert Chronicles

I have been on the search for the ultimate brownie for a long time. Before now, I had yet to find a homemade brownie that even closely matched the perfection of a brownie made from a box. It seemed impossible to match the perfectly chewy fudgy texture and crackly top of the brownies I grew up eating.

Made of only three ingredients, they are free of all of the preservatives and additives found in store bought candy and they are so much fun to make. Chocolate, peanut butter and a sprinkle of sea salt are all you need to have this bite sized treat ready in under an hour. [Read more...]
