I get it, baking can be a little overwhelming at times. The precision and meticulousness it takes is not for everyone. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.
I remember when I first moved out on my own even standing near the oven sent chills down my spine.
I quickly learned; cook or starve and from that point on I cooked. It wasn’t exactly the prize winning apple pie at the local fair but I quickly discovered that when learning to cook or bake something new, it’s best to start with a recipe with few ingredients.
These brownies are the best and so easy to make. So instead of using your oven to store blankets (yes, I know someone who does this) go ahead and be daring…BAKE!
5 oz. of Unsweetened Chocolate
