Ultimate Double Chocolate Brownies

HOW is it possible that I’ve never posted this Double Chocolate Brownies recipe? I make it ALL. THE. TIME.

It is seriously the best brownie recipe ever. I’ve been making it regularly ever since I got married over 17 years ago. It came in a Pillsbury dessert recipe cookbook I received as a wedding present and quickly became a family favorite. These are a rich, dense, gooey type of brownie. If you like cakey brownies, they aren’t for you.

All the kids love these — and their friends too. They have become somewhat of a legend, but I can’t take credit. I just follow the original recipe to a T.

It’s super easy, and it is delicious because it is full of butter and eggs.
