Hearty and Rich Chocolate Brownie packs a flavor

These brownies are every bit as good as they look,  they almost remind me of fudge – another favorite of mine.    Oh, and you can cut them in two and have two of them.    I know, I know…it’s the same as one bigger one but something about eating two just seems like more.Rich chocolate brownies with pecansBe sure to eat at least one of them just out of the oven.  You can’t beat a brownie still warm from the oven.
