I am very much a chocolate person, I eat chocolate, whenever I’m sad, happy, excited, almost every time. I think I got my love for chocolate from my grandmother, but she’s on the other level of being a chocolate lover. Given that she’s 88 years old now, and the doctor told her not to eat sweets anymore, she’s still hiding a chocolate snack bar in her purse.

When she was younger, around 60 years old, and she can walk normally, we can always see her do some cooking in the kitchen. One of my favorites is these brownies, a taste of heaven, the best brownies ever. They are rich, fudgy, and made entirely from scratch. Such brownies are so much better than the package, and I know you’ve got everything you need to make them sit in your kitchen already. I hope you’ll make your version of these brownies, and I guarantee you’ll family will enjoy this, especially if you have kids.
