Tasty Tuesday – Basic Dark Chocolate Brownies

I’m sorry.

I’m slightly obsessed with brownies right now.

There is just something about pure chocolate in bar form.

It’s moist, it’s fudgey, a bit cakey… it’s delicious.

My mouth is watering right now just thinking about it.

When I made the Red Velvet Brownies, I thought the brownie layer was YUMMY! I went on the same blog and found out her basic brownie mixture that she adapts for all kinds of flavorful brownie treats.

And I made it.

And it was TASTY.

In case you’re wondering, the glass of milk is not a prop…it’s a necessity.

These puppies are so chocolately. It’s time to finish your snack when that glass is empty.

Eat up!
