These classic brownies are so decadent the whole pan will be gone before you know it! This is hands down the best brownie recipe I have ever made. It was passed down from my Great Aunt, and it has been the exclusive recipe I have used since discovering it. A few years back, my mom gave me a huge collection of her aunt's recipes and I went through them and decided to try these first. They quickly became a staple in my house because they were simply so delicious!

These brownies use baking chocolate instead of cocoa powder which is important to give them their chewy, fudgy, deliciousness. They also have an icing that hardens into a decadent layer on top which takes them to a whole new level. Do not skip the icing on these!

If you like moist, delicious, fudgy brownies then you're going to love these. They're simple to make, coming together in less than an hour. You’re going to want to make them on repeat!
