Weekend is finally upon us. You know what goes well with weekends? Brownies. Seriously. Sure, nobody has said it out loud – but that’s only because who wants to be labelled the fatass? Imagine not having to struggle with the snooze button, and instead sinking your teeth into rich, chocolaty brownies the moment you wake up. Well, okay, eating brownies doesn’t have to be the first thing you do this weekend, but I honestly see no problem in that either! Brownies are so versatile. Pair it with a good cup of coffee, you got yourself breakfast. Dress it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel syrup, and a sprinkle of nuts, you have dessert. Serve it alongside a thick piece of juicy steak, et voila, dinner! Hmm, maybe not the last one because I would want to consume my steak without distraction, and the brownies would be too much of a temptation, but you get the idea.
Here’s the anatomy of a perfect brownie: you start with a crisp crust that crackles to give a view of the underlying dense, fudge-y chocolate base that gives you just the right amount of sweetness to wake up your senses. That itself is perfect, but adorn it with nuts, peanut butter, more chocolate, and it just gets better and better.
Here are 13 delicious brownie recipes to give you the luckiest of weekends. Get baking!
