Ooey Gooey Chocolate Brownie Sundae

For the longest time, brownies were the one thing I refused to make homemade. Brownies from the box are just so perfectly delicious and all of the homemade brownies I have ever tasted didn't even come close to the box. But out of the blue, I felt an overwhelming urge to bake brownies - homemade - not from a box. And as an added bonus, I just happened to have all of the necessary ingredients (which is actually extremely rare these days). I probably did at least an hours worth of research for the most appealing recipe, and let me tell you, when 1,086 people think a recipe is amazing, 9.999 times out of 10, they are right!

Yet even with so many killer reviews, I still had my doubts. I always thought that perfect sheen on top of brownies - you know that glossy, flaky layer - was only achievable if you used a box. Well I was wrong. so so so very wrong. These are probably the best brownies I have ever had. They are melt in your mouth, fudgy perfection and can be eaten in an endless amount of ways.

One bite and ahhh ...chocolatey brownie bliss...

Fudgy goodness aka brownie batter

½ cup of melted butter
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (or anything else you want to put in there)

You can find the link to the Directions HERE (sorry I was too lazy to type it up myself - and honestly, these directions are pretty straight forward so it's not even worth putting in my own words.)  bon courage!

oh yeahhhh

you know you want it....

Does life really get much better than this?
.....probably not.
