Is there anyone who doesn’t love a freshly baked brownie? Has someone ever found fault with this supremely rich, gooey, chocolate delight? Is there a person either young or old that does not have an allergy to chocolate that can resist the temptation to have just one more?
I think not.
As they say in infomercials… But wait. There’s more!
I’m going to give you another temptation to go along with the warm, silky decadence that is a freshly baked homemade brownie. I’m going to add the one piece of the puzzle that should have been there all along. That little thing that should have always been a part of the recipe, but has gone somehow unnoticed in a million previous incarnations.
This brownie bites back.
This year we are finally getting to a few of the recipes we wanted to try before my wife left for her stint overseas. While she is a fantastic cook in her own right, my wife is the baker in the family. She does not share my fear of measuring spoons or exacting amounts. These are things that she has mastered, and it shows.
If I had to suggest any recipe for brownies, this would be it. if you don’t like spice, leave it out, but you have to try this recipe. Right now. Don’t wait like we did. Don’t deprive yourself or your family of these amazing flavors. Just print the recipe below, make a batch and let us know what you think in the comments.
I promise that you will not be disappointed.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
For the love of all that is good and Holy, NOTHING! This recipe does not need to be modified. Ever.
