Chocolate Fudge Brownies
I made these brownies twice. And not once did I have the chance to slather them in luscious chocolate butter cream. Brownies go fast in my house. With my two girls, my two nieces, hubby, mom and sister in the kitchen, really did they have a chance.
Always the blogger (thinking of the photo I just had to snap) I tried to slice these brownies into pint size pieces. Of course this backfired, because after one bite everyone came back for more and more. Can you blame them?
I myself had three (did I just say that out loud?). Anyways , we kick off our cooking spotlight of Joy the Baker’s Cookbook hosted by girlichef with Chocolate Fudge Brownies. So Joy.
Joy oozes sweet. She makes baking fun, relaxed and approachable with her quirky sense of humor. She LOVES her parents and is first to acknowledge her passion in the kitchen is due to the time spent with them baking.
Love, Love, Love…
