This recipe makes an eight inch pan of soft and chewy Chocolate Brownies. I love small batches, they’re the perfect size for Paul and I. When the need arises, you can double the recipe to make a bigger pan.
These soft and chewy brownies are so easy to make you don’t even need a mixer. I lined the baking pan with foil and then greased the foil before adding the batter to it.
Make sure you leave a little over hang on two sides to make it easier to left the brownies from the pan. Using the foil makes it so much easier to remove and cut the brownies into nice even slices.
