Homemade FUDGY Brownies

Light and crisp outside, super gooey and rich chocolate on the insude. Eating just one is tough. Awesome! – Viviana

Basically, when you hear brownie you think a chocolate square or rectangular baked sweet. Brownies can be cakey, fudgy or something in between. If you want to get fancy you can add nuts, frosting, cream cheese, chocolate chips, or other ingredients, but for this recipe we keep it simple. This brownie is a fudgy recipe with a delicate glossy "skin" on the upper crust. After you try this brownie, you won't go back to the boxed ones ever again.

Fun Fact: The brownie was created at The Palmer House hotel in Chicago, United States at the end of the 19th century and it's been popular ever since.

It’s solid on the outside, but warm and fudgy on the inside. The big pieces of dark chocolate are just exciting to the eyes. Stack them unevenly high and shamelessly with no regard for your blood pressure sprinkle them with large flaky sea salt. The chocolate and salt combination will make your head spin.
