Some days, you just need a brownie.  Like a Monday morning – I don’t know about you, but this whole Monday morning business would be a lot easier if brownies were involved.  What’s not to love about a little square of chocolate decadence.  They always bring a smile to my face!  And I have the perfect recipe for you today.  These brownies are fudgey, moist, and have a deep chocolate flavor.  They are simple – no salted caramel or extra chocolate chips.  And while I enjoy all types of brownies, today I’m sticking to the basics – classic, intensely chocolaty brownies.    …
