But I digress. Cooking makes me sort of loopy sometimes.
So do these brownies. They make me go so crazy I turn into the type of animal that steals the food meant for it's family. Whoa, did you know there's even a name for this? It's called kleptoparasitism. Gee, google is a splendid creature.
I should probably stop.
Let's talk about the important things here- butter, eggs, and sugar. Does anyone really need anything else in life?
Other than chocolate, that is. Why does cocoa powder always make such a huge mess?
Never mind. Focus! These brownies are awesome. They have crunchy tops, gooey insides (even when fully baked), and can be made with stuff you probably already have at home. And you can use margarine (hello non dairy!) and nobody will ever know the difference.
Too bad there won't be enough left by the time my friends get here. Better go make more food!
Until next time,
The Best Chocolate Brownies Ever
