In my novel, Don’t Fear the Reaper, Keely laments on never being able to taste her mom’s recipe for Wicked Brownies again. Here’s that recipe – super simple to make and super chocolately. It’s actually a boxed recipe that I’ve altered and shared long ago on another message board.
Other than having someone else make them, it can’t get any easier.
*A box of Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate brownie mix (NOTE! It HAS to be Ghirardelli. I’ve tried this recipe with other mixes and it never comes out tasting half as good. You can use Double Chocolate or Fudge, too.)
*Milk chocolate chips AND semi-sweet chocolate chips (Milk chocolate chips are crucial)
Now, here’s the modification part:
*Replace the 1/3 cup of oil with 1/3 cup melted butter
* Add in a large handful of MILK chocolate chips, s squirt of chocolate syrup, and a half handful of the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
* Bake for a few minutes LESS than what the recipe calls for. I usually bake them for about 39 minutes.
They’ll take a while to set (45 minutes to an hour) once they come from the oven, but if you’re like me, you won’t care if you need a fork or spoon.
Don’t forget a cold glass of milk, or maybe a scoop of ice cream! We like vanilla, sea-salt caramel Gelato, or peppermint bark Gelato.
