How To Make Brownies From Scratch

Making brownies from scratch is almost as easy as buying a brownie mix from the store, but there is just no comparison to the delicious taste and texture of a homemade brownie. The ingredients used in this easy brownie recipe are all ones I keep on-hand – nothing strange and nothing too perishable.

The brownie batter comes together by mixing the simple ingredients together, then gently folding in some chocolate chips. You bake your brownies in a preheated oven, and in 25-30 minutes you’re all ready to indulge on the best chocolate brownies ever!

Brownie Frosting

Some people love putting frosting on top of their brownies, but I don’t think these brownies need it.  I never put frosting on this brownie recipe but if you love frosting then go for it!  I’m sure it’ll be delicious.
