Ever since I was a kid, I loved to bake from scatch. I've tried the packaged cookie doughs, and even the dry mix cookies that all you have to do is add an egg and water, but no matter what homemade cookies are FAR better. On the opposite end of the spectrum however, are brownies. I've tried dozens of made from scratch recipes and am always disappointed. Well this last week my husband was craving some brownies and I was shocked that I didn't have a box on hand (I'm one of those that has at least 5 boxes in my food storage for the last minute go-to treat). So I went to the internet scouring website after website for something that was easy and had ingredients that I had in my cupboard. I happened upon FoodNetwork.com and Alton Brown had a brownie recipe that seemed too easy to be true, or good. But what the heck, I thought, I'll try it out. So I did and the day has come that I can say to the masses, that I have found a brownie recipe that is way better than the box mix!! They are chewy, and fudgy, and rich, and everything you'd ever want in a brownie, but something more. I can't name what it is, but every person that had one was amazed and asked for the recipe. So as promised, here you go.
