The Best Fudgy Brownies (Like Box Mix!)

These are the best Fudgy Brownies that taste like a better version of your favorite box mix! They have that cakey yet fudgy texture that we all grew up on!

Fudgy Brownies

Whether you are an edge person or a middle brownie person, these brownies will rock your world! The edges have that crispy chew and the centers are delightfully fudgy and soft! 

Now you know me and I want my chocolate desserts to taste rich and chocolatey, so you know I couldn’t just let cocoa powder do all the heavy lifting! I invited melted bittersweet chocolate and an epic amount of butter to this party. But it is still easy to mix and it all comes together with a whisk and a little elbow grease.

So pick your favorite frosting or let them shine all on their own!
