25 Delicious Homemade Brownie Recipes You Should Make Tonight!

brownie recipes

I think brownies might be one of my favorite desserts. They pretty much combine everything perfect and good in the world – butter, chocolate, sugar – into wonderfully fudgy, cakey, warm perfection.

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel and I’ll marry you.


Delicious Homemade Brownies Better Than a Box:

True story: I’ve made dozens of homemade brownies over the years and they have just never measured up to the Ghirardelli boxed brownie mix.

Until recently. I tried a new one-bowl recipe and they were the brownies of my dreams.

Easy, quick, and absolutely delicious.

So, I decided to share the love and asked the lovely blogger to share it with you and she agreed. But, I didn’t stop there. I rounded up the absolute best brownie recipes on the internet.


You’re welcome.

Because is there anything better on a cold, rainy winter night than a warm brownie?

No. The answer is no.
