i hope everyone has made it through the long weekend of chocolate! i mean, easter. i figured i would stick with the chocolate theme from this weekend (because who can honestly get sick of anything chocolate) by making chocolate chip brownies! i have honestly made so many different types of brownie recipes, i can't even keep track. from fudgey to cakey, i would say this recipe produces the best of both worlds. you can mix in just about anything you like! the variations i have made are chocolate chips, peanut butter, walnuts, coconut, cream cheese, oh the possibilities are endless! however, for this particular batch i kept it simple, to embrace brownies in its true glory.
