12 Weeks of Cookies Week 10 - Gooey Melt in Your Mouth Chocolate Brownies

Mmm, brownies. They are one of my favorite things to eat but I'm usually never the one to make them. I was feeling adventurous this week and decided to make my own.

If I made these brownies again, I would use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips. But that's really all I would change, I love brownies that are chewy and have a melt in your mouth goodness. If you are looking for a gooey brownie recipe, this one works really well. Bike Boy came home and tried them and loved them. What more could a wife want really?
