There is just nothing that compares to homemade fudgy brownies. I love the smell that fills our whole apartment when these brownies are baking. These brownies are made from scratch and I promise you that they’re just as easy to make as brownies from a box but they taste a million times better. I guarantee after you make these homemade fudgy brownies, you will never make a brownie box mix again!

These brownies have the perfect flakey crust with a gooey, fudgy center, just the way I like my brownies. Sometimes I  leave them plain or I top them with a milk chocolate frosting for even more deliciousness, but either way they are the best brownies ever!

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔  I like to use Milk Chocolate Chips to make these brownies, but you can also use semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips….it just depends on how rich you like your brownies to be.

✔ To make it super easy for you to cut the brownies into squares, line your 9×13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the brownies have cooled, lift the brownies out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Then use a sharp knife to cut the brownies into squares. SUPER EASY! 

✔ You can leave these brownies plain or you can top them with milk chocolate frosting. Either way they are delicious.
