If you’re looking for a recipe to make with young children, this works well!
These chocolate brownies have a true chocolate flavor and are a quick easy sweet fix! I made 1 1/2 recipes because I only had a 7×11 inch glass baking pan which is slightly larger than the 8×8 inch dish used in this recipe. If you want to make a 9×13 pan I would double the recipe.
It’s a forgiving recipe. Just don’t over bake them. Brownies firm up and harden as they cool. They will be very moist when they’re done.
When making larger recipes add on 2 minutes of cooking time and then check them every 15 seconds. Add on more time as needed
