Do you all just love brownies? For years and years I have always stood by the boxed brownies that you buy at the grocery store. They were always the best and the few times that I actually tried making them from scratch, they were awful! I seemed to always try out the recipes that called for the baking chocolate squares. You know, that really expensive chocolate in the baking aisle!! So not only did the brownies not turn out good, I also just bought $10 worth of chocolate for them!! Seriously, it was kinda’ annoying πŸ™‚Β 

That’s why I absolutely love these homemade brownies because they call for cocoa powder. I always have a container of cocoa powder in my pantry so whenever that chocolate brownie craving hits at my house we’re prepared.Β

These brownies really are the best! I don’t use the term ‘the best’ lightly. As I mentioned in another post, I only say ‘the best’ when it completely replaces the store-bought version for me. I have not made boxed brownies in several years and this is the recipe I always turn to.Β 

You mix everything up in one bowl with a spoon. No mixer needed. Pour into a greased baking dish and let them bake in the oven. If you want fudgier, softer brownies bake them for less time and if you want chewy brownies that are not soggy in the middle, the bake them for more time.

Just remember that they will continue to cook as they cool once they’re out of the oven, so you don’t want to over cook these.Β

Whenever my kids want dessert or when I say “let’s make a treat”, 9 times out of 10 they will yell sayΒ “BROWNIES!! WITH SPRINKLES”. My daughter has even gotten to the point where she can kind of make these on her own. They really are so simple!

As an added bonus, because you guys are my favorite, here is an idea for the yummiest and probably easiest dessert you will ever make and eat! Make a batch of these brownies and then put a scoop of any flavor ice cream you want on top of a brownie square, and drizzle with some ice cream syrup (we love to use the magic shell stuff). I am not even kidding when I say that this dessert is crazy good.

Our favorite ice cream to scoop on top is cookies n’ cream ice cream. Even as I am typing this out I am craving one of these with a big scoop of ice cream. I want one. Like now! Seriously, you guys, sooooooo good! Enjoy friends!

    October 15, 2018 at 7:09 pm I seldom leave reviews. I came across this recipe after googling β€œeasy recipes to bake”. I have a carry In tomorrow, and just needed something that I could bake with the staples I had on hand. I always have problems with brownies setting up and ending up β€œcake-like”. I have never used a recipe from scratch and always relied on box mixes. Never again! This recipe was absolutely delicious! So rich and flavorful, and the brownies were set up and chewy! I baked them on parchment paper which allowed for easy clean up. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! I was able to cut a strip and gave a few bites to my family and they all loved it!
