A few weeks ago, I issued a desperate call on Twitter. I was craving brownies like nobody’s business, and I needed a quick and easy recipe immediately. I received quite a few links to recipes (including Bridget’s recipe for Carmel Brownies…nom nom nom), but I didn’t have all of the necessary ingredients. Thankfully, Nicki at Domestic Cents came to my rescue.
Now, before I give you the recipe for the Best Brownies You Will Ever Eat, I need to let you in on a secret. Well, it’s not really a secret if you know me other than from behind the computer screen. You see, I play Martha Stewart in the craft world, but I HATE cooking and baking. Hate. Hate. Hate. I’d much rather clean the toilets than have to do anything in the kitchen. It’s just not something that is even remotely enjoyable to me. If it were up to me, we’d eat sandwiches or cereal every night. I’m lucky that my husband enjoys cooking, so he makes sure we stay fed.
Keeping that in mind, I should also call this recipe the Best and EASIEST Brownies You Will Ever Eat. Or maybe, the Best, Easiest, Most Melt in Your Mouth Deliciousness, There Won’t Be Any Left in the Morning, Moist Brownies You Will Ever Eat. Or maybe, I should just call them Caty’s Brownies like Nikki does.
The recipe takes minutes to prepare, requires nothing special (just everyday items you probably already have in your kitchen) and takes only 30-35 minutes to bake. When they are ready, you will feel like you have died and gone to brownie heaven. I know everyone thinks their brownie recipe is the best, but I really need you to just trust me on this one and try it yourself.

That’s it, guys. Homemade brownies don’t get any simpler…or more delicious (but I think I mentioned that). I’m getting ready to whip up a batch this morning to take to a friend’s house who invited us to lunch today.
Have a great weekend – and bake some brownies!
P.S. For the first time EVER, I have a yummy recipe to link up to Bridget’s Flavor-of-the-Month linky party. Y’all, I’m just warning you. Once you visit Bake at 350, you will become obsessed. Her cookies, her photos, her icing…sigh. She is just amazing.
