Basic Brownies

 Basic Brownies 3

I have to admit something to you, my 17 year old son is the brownie maker at our house. He loves to make these - and asks to make them every so often. This Basic Brownies recipe is one of the very first recipes I got when I moved out on my own. It's been my go to brownie recipe for - *ahem - I can't believe I'm saying this* - over 20 years!

The great thing about this recipe is that it uses pantry staples - so you probably already have everything on hand. I love that these cook up so thick and fudge-y! Although we usually enjoy them just plain like this - sometimes, we add mini M&M's, or add a thick layer of chocolatey frosting or doctor them up some other way.
