I'm going to share a secret. Ready? I have never made homemade brownies until now. The only brownies I make are from a mix. I realized that it was time to change this sad fact, so I searched online for a quick and delicious homemade brownie recipe. This is the first recipe I have tried, and it completely changed my views on brownies. Although many mix brownies are delicious, the ones that this recipe makes are super easy and packed with loads of intense chocolate flavor. Be warned, these brownies are only for true chocolate lovers!
