Thick Double Chocolate Brownies

There are 3 things you should know about me. 1) I love chocolate 2) I love brownies and 3) I LOVE Halloween! I made these Thick, Double Chocolate Brownies to celebrate all of my loves!

I Love Chocolate!

I love it! And I have ever since I was a little girl. Whenever I got home from trick-or-treating, it was always the chocolate I went to first. Give me the Snickers, the Milky Ways, the Whatchamacallits, the 3 Muskateers! Yum! Even a Hershey Kiss was an amazing treat in my eyes. Not much has changed. I still love all of those chocolate candy bars. Delicious memories!

I Love Brownies! (Especially these Thick, Double Chocolate Brownies!)

If you were to ask me what my favorite dessert is, it would be brownies. Yes, I love all desserts, but this one tops my list. A good, fudgy brownie that’s decadently chocolate! And bonus if you want to throw in raspberries or a caramel filling! Nothing makes me happier. Except maybe pizza or tacos. Or finding a cure for COVID-19…but I digress.

I Love Halloween!

I’ve written about my love of Halloween several times, but this time of year always has me feeling wistful. I love all of my Halloween memories as a kid. So much fun and so much candy! I would spend HOURS trick-or-treating and I loved every minute of it. Thankfully, the little sous chef loves it too. So now I get to re-live it all through her! Woo hoo!

Get Baking!

Halloween may look a bit different this year, but that’s okay! Even if we don’t go trick-or-treating, you know we’ll be whipping up a bath of these brownies. And you should do the same! Grab the recipe below and don’t forget that it’s okay to have  a little fun, okay! 🙂
