So the other night I was craving cake but knowing it would not be super easy I choose brownies instead.
1/2 cup butter- melted
12 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 cups sugar- I usually cut this in half
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup flour
Mix all ingredients together until combined. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
I honestly cannot remember where I got this recipe from but it is very good and super easy. This time Jeff "helped" meaning I asked for the cocoa and he gave me hot chocolate powder, I didn't realize this until I was halfway through adding it. Thankfully the brownies still turned out good, a little cakier than usual, but I blame that on the hot cocoa mix.
