My husband loves brownies. LOVES them! So what did he request when I asked him what he'd like me to make him with my new mixer? Brownies! I have never had luck with homemade ones but the last two batches I made have turned out delicious! Yay! I used the recipe on the back of the cocoa powder because he requested a chewy fudgy brownie. This were a hit and my hubby gobbled up a row of them in an hours time!
