This afternoon I felt to make cookies, so I pulled out one of my all-purpose cookbooks and started looking through, and I landed on a page with brownies. This recipe is super easy and quick, it's actually mixed in a saucepan, and makes some delicious and moist cocoa brownies. (I hate dry brownies!) I was also happy that it used all pantry staples, so I had all the ingredients on hand. Enjoy!
