Gooey Fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies

This gooey fudgy dark chocolate brownies recipe is sooooooo good. I am obsessed with these brownies. First thing to do is check my printable recipe at the bottom of this post. Gather and measure all your ingredients.

Start by positioning a rack in the lower third of your oven and preheat to 325° F. Next, cut an 8 by 16-inch piece of parchment paper.

Lightly butter an 8 by 8 by 2-inch pan and line it with the parchment, allowing it to extend evenly over the opposite sides. Butter the parchment including the paper on the sides of the pan.

  1. When I came home and opened the front door, the aroma of the brownies was such a greeting. These fudgy and nutty brownies had a “secret” ingredient – the cheeries – which added a bitter/sweet addition.
    Try them. You will be so happy.
