I think that there are very few all-American kids that don’t grow up eating brownies. It seems like everyone has their own version. They are so simple and yet so many people go to the boxed mixes, I don’t get it. Chunky Chocolate Fudge Brownies

It isn’t exactly rocket science to stir some basic ingredients together and it hardly takes more time than adding liquid ingredients to a box mix. After that, the rest of the steps are the same whether you are using a mix or making them from scratch. If you use a mix you will probably end up feeding them to your trash can because box mixes usually come out way too dry and cakey (spell check says cakey isn’t a word. They have obviously never heard of brownie mixes).


Brownies are a million times better when they are made from scratch, just saying. This is my go-to recipe that has never failed me.

The chocolate chunks could probably be considered optional but in my opinion they are mandatory, bordering on legally required
