This Ultimate Brownie Recipe makes a rich, chewy brownie with a yummy crackled top.
This perfect, chewy chocolatey brownie tastes great plain or topped with buttercream frosting. Try my recipe for Baileys Irish Cream frosting. The half tablespoon of instant coffee granules I added to this recipe made it taste even better! Not a coffee person, no problem, simply leave the coffee out.
Enjoy these brownies with a large glass of cold milk or top with some vanilla ice-cream, YUM! A decadent dessert for the true chocolate lover with combination of dark chocolate and cocoa powder.
