The Best Brownies. Ever.

When it comes to brownies I’m not hard to please, though I do have a few stipulations that can usually be applied to most baked goods in general.

Perhaps a little too excited– Chris can vouch for all my “OMGs” while I was taste-testing it in the kitchen. There were, like, at least five.
