OMG !!! Brownies

What’s your favorite dessert? Me, I go for chocolate ,if given a choice and a brownie is at the top of my list. I had my “tried and true” brownie recipe, but to be truthful, I was a little bored with it. So I started searching on the web and came across the King Arthur Flour GUARENTEED Fudge brownie recipe.

So last weekend I made my first ice cream of the season. Well, it was delicious! My only substitution was using dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar – because that’s what I had in my pantry.
