Cooking Thursday

I came across this recipe for the best brownies ever and I disregarded the title, because although I've had some good brownies, none have really lived up to that name.  I must confess to often using boxed mixes which are good for a quick fix, but certainly aren't the best.
However I decided to try these and I have to say - they beat any recipe I'm made before!  They are rich and chewy and also so easy to throw together.  I've made them with the toffee bits and loved those little bits of goodness in them. The original recipe called for frosting the brownies but I think they are rich enough on their own. Try them - you'll like them!

YUM these look so good. I too have been known to use boxed just because it's faster, but I'll have to try these for sure :)

Anything involving chocolate has to be the Best! I already saved it and will try it gluten free.
