TWD Classic Brownie


I could rename this brownie, it would be 'The Perfect Brownie'! Such a simple recipe, melt butter, two kinds of chocolate add sugar, eggs and salt. Mix well. Gently fold in the flour and pecans. That's it! I baked mine 33 minutes which was prefect. I did toast the pecans. Toasted pecans are one of my new favorite ingredients.
I'm sure this brownie did not need frosting but hubby loves frosting on brownies. He's out doing yard work, I think frosting is his Love Language. I frosted them with my favorite Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting. It only makes brownies better.


This brownie recipe uses ingredients I keep in my pantry. I won't admit to how many kinds of chocolate I keep in my pantry. This brownie would be great served with ice cream and hot fudge. Leave out the nuts and slip one in your child's lunch box. Wrap this brownie well and send it to a hungry college student. One brownie, so many uses! Thanks Dorie for another excellent recipe.
The complete recipe can be found on Anne Strawberry's Blog. Anne's blog is one I look forward to looking at often. She has great recipes, fun favorites and darling little ones!

There's an interesting question - we should all reveal how many kinds of chocolate are in our house.
Love your frosting. That really finishes the brownies off nicely.
