Another day, another challenge from a coworker to update a favorite recipe. I love being challenged and my coworkers like to give me ideas of what to bake. I mean, they get the treats after I’m done baking and shooting them, so they are REALLY invested in helping me come up with ideas. This past week I was challenged to create a moist, fudgey brownie and OMG they were great! I would have never thought to have made my Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies without the insistence from my coworkers. When they are right, they are REALLY right.
These brownies were soooo chocolatey and gooey, which is just what I love about brownies. Tai and I ate some with vanilla ice cream (why didn’t I get a photo of that? UGH I wish had thought of that sooner!) and then later dipped some in milk. I know that’s more of a cookie thing, but these brownies are just begging for some milk.
This was another dessert that I brought into work and had disappear almost immediately. I guess it doesn’t help that other departments know about my baking and watch the photo room for when I bring in treats. Next time I’ll have to bring in a double batch!
So for all of you chocolate lovers, you brownie enthusiasts, you dessert people, this one’s for you!
