Chewy Chocolatey Homemade Brownies

Look no further for another brownie recipe! These brownies are perfectly chewy and moist and can be used as a brownie base for just about any recipe. 

Whenever I need to make a brownie recipe I always turn to this one. My mom got this recipe from our  neighbor years ago and we haven’t turned back since. These brownies always turn out so chewy and moist. Heaven!
You can serve these brownies plain with a glass of milk, or you can use them as a base for other delicious brownie recipes. You can also sprinkle powdered sugar over them, frost them with your favorite frosting, or serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yuuuum! No matter what kind of brownie I’m making, this is the recipe I use for the chocolatey brownie part! So good.

    I use the Hershey’s cocoa or Nestle Toll House cocoa. Both are really good. But any kind of cocoa you find at your grocery store works great!
