Everyone needs a go-to chocolate brownie recipe that whips up super fast using ingredients you probably already have on hand. And if it only messes up one bowl in the process? Well, that’s even better! Of course when my friend Natalie shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago, insisting that these were the best brownies on the planet, I have to admit, I was skeptical. After all, I’ve already publicly declared my allegiance to brownies from a box. How much better could these ones be?

So. Much. Better.

Fudgy, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth-and-make-you-want-to-cry better.

I know when I’ve been beaten. These One Bowl Brownies win the gold medal, hands down.

But do you want to know the best part of all? You can make these brownies using 12 ounces of any chocolate you happen to have sitting around. I used milk chocolate chips for this particular batch, but come Monday I will definitely be confiscating, er repurposing all those chocolate eggs from the Easter Bunny. You know, to make brownies for my kids. 😉
