Delicious Past…

Homemade Brownies


 My DH has never been a huge fan of desserts. The only thing he really loves are brownies. A brownie sundae to be exact. No matter what restaurant we are at, if they have a brownie sundae he is going to order it. After a while we started making the box brownies and going crazy over brownie sundaes at home.

One day I realized, “I can probably make these homemade and they will taste a lot better.” So I started my quest to create the perfect homemade brownies. This easy brownie recipe doesn’t call for butter but uses oil instead. That is frowned on by some but it made for a better brownie for my palate. Let me know what you think.

Delicious Rating: Chocolatey, chewy, delicious. This is the perfect homemade brownie recipe. They aren’t cakey but chewy, like brownies should be. We dress up the brownies with caramel & chocolate sauce. Top with vanilla ice cream and additional pecans…need I say more?

    Easy recipe to follow, smelled wonderful and looked perfect! WAY TO SALTY…had to throw the entire batch away!! I was so embarrassed, we had a friend of our daughters over for the first time and we just served the vanilla ice cream! I wish I would have made them out of the box.

    I think that lady must’ve measured wrong. Half a teaspoon of salt will hardly be noticeable in any pan of brownies. Mine turned out delicious! Thanks for the quick & easy recipe!
