Easy Brownie Recipe

Hey there friends,

How are things?  What is everyone up to these days?  I have been busy lately and I just found some time to post this easy brownie recipe.   I have to admit that as a child I used to eat chocolate.  When I say chocolate I mean just brownies and my favorite chocolate bar which was and still is a Snickers bar.  Yes, foodie friends, I am a Snickers fan!!  The combination of nuts and caramel ohhh love it and a Snicker’s bar well it has a bit of both worlds.  What is your favorite Chocolate Bar?

There is one little trick that I have up my sleeve so here it is so pay close attention. hehe  I use 1/2 cup of butter in this recipe, so I divide the 1/2 cup into two parts.  I melt one part and leave the other part at room temperature. 🙂  Once the butter has melted I set it aside to cool and then I combine both and pour it into the chocolate batter.  Give it a try and let me know what you think..:)

My mom has been baking brownies forever!!  To this day when I am back in Greece visiting, my mom will always have a small pan of hot brownies and homemade ice cream ready for us.  I know I have stated that I do not like chocolate.  I don’t but brownies well that’s a whole different story.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. Mmm yummy yummy – yes please! Do these come out quite moist and gooey? I’ll bookmark the page and print it later as I’d love to try them. I’ve made brownies on occasion before and they weren’t too fabulous (I’ll pretty much eat anything with full on chocolate though so I didn’t mind).

    I wonder if Snickers are the same over there as they are in the UK? Chocolate, caramel and peanuts. 😄

  3. I have not been baking much lately 😔with both my kids out of the house, and Covid being so depressing, i just havent been motivated to bake! And, now that restrictions are finally lifting, I have been out doing all the activities that I love and not been in the kitchen😂 I need to get it together and start again! This looks like a tasty way to begin 💕
