There are many times when I have asked my husband what he would like for dessert, and he would tell me that he wants chocolate brownies. I know that many people love them, and some of them more than others. The great thing about chocolate brownies is that you can do almost anything you want with them. I am always a little disappointed because my mother loves to put nuts in her brownies, though I know a lot of people like to do this. Just because my idea of the perfect brownie is different from everyone else does not mean I won’t enjoy one now and then.
When I make chocolate brownies at home I never include nuts. Even though my husband would likely to put them in, I simply cannot stand them within a brownie. I am open to putting other things in brownies however, and one of my most favorite additions is peanut butter. Other times, we like to make double chocolate brownies, or perhaps just make a double batch so that they are thick and chewy.
If you enjoy chocolate brownies in your home like we do, you have probably noticed that they don’t last very long. My husband seems to go through them like they are water, and I have even tried to make a double batch to see if they would last longer. It doesn’t seem to matter how many chocolate brownies I make, they disappear within a matter of days. I am quite often trying to watch my weight, so I will put them away in the cupboard so I can’t see them. Though out of sight is out of mind for me, this doesn’t seem to affect my husband very much. He finds them no matter where they go.
You can buy chocolate brownies most anywhere you buy desserts, but you will find the best ones are the ones are homemade. Though there are some decent ones that come in packages in the store, you can’t beat making them at home for yourself. There are also bakeries that make their own chocolate brownies, and these are quite often the very best you can buy. Even better, they have many different ingredients for brownies, and you can usually find whatever it is you want for desire. Brownies are definitely not a dieters best friend, but if you have a chocolate craving that just won’t let you be, having a bite or two of a really great brownie might be just what you mean.
