I open the pantry doors and just stare wishing something in there would fulfill my sweet tooth. A serious craving for chocolate has struck and Homemade Double Chocolate Brownies sound pretty good right about now.
Fast forward an hour. I’ve experimented with what I had on hand and the house smells of heavenly chocolate. I can’t wait, so I dig in. The piece I cut isn’t staying together all that great. They taste good, but could be better. I head to bed with my sweet tooth sated, but not overly impressed with my kitchen escapades.
The next morning I decide to have one for breakfast. (Chocolate is good any time of day!) The square I cut this time stays together perfectly. I take a bite and can’t believe they’re they same exact brownies I tried straight out of the oven the night before. They are SO GOOD! So good in fact, I had a second.
So believe me when I say, these brownies are even better once they’ve had a chance to completely cool, set, and develop their flavor...
I took them as dessert for lunch at my brother’s house. My sister-in-law warmed hers up in the microwave for about 10 seconds and she says that was the way to go! I love a warm brownie with a scoop of ice cream.
She had hers with a cup of hot coffee. A glass of cold milk is also another favorite. What is your favorite way to enjoy a brownie?
These brownies are a perfect combination of fudgy and cakey textures with a fabulous chocolate flavor. Below is a printable recipe for you!

Hope you make them and love them as much as my family!
Ahhh, this sounds amazing! Box brownie mix is nice, but they're never *that* great, and they can be switched the next time for a different brand, no change between them in taste. I'm betting this knocks those out of the park!
Waiting for the next day for desserts, though, ah that's painful. The same is with key lime pie - gotta make it the day before, and that wait is so painful!
Thanks for joining delicious dishes party 🙂 Your double chocolate brownies sound PERFECT- I wish I had some right now!
