Triple chocolate brownies

Posted on: October 24, 2008

I can’t count the amount of times i’ve made brownies. Each time i make them, i want to perfect it even further. My first brownies were rather ordinary. It looked like a good brownie but when you bite into it didn’t sing in your mouth like it’s supposed to. Yesterday, i came across this recipe and decided to try it out. It’s not quite the perfect brownie but it’s pretty darn close!
