Classic Chocolate Chewy Brownies + Chocolate Glaze

classic chocolate brownies

So the weather has been so off and on lately…..

like, honestly….. spring was here for 2 days and now seems long gone. Snow and freezing rain have returned and we’re cooped up inside again.

You’ve probably learned by now that I like to eat me feelings. Comfort food when I’m feeling down, is a must!

With this crummy, gloomy weather I was feeling pretty down. So what’s better than chocolate to brighten your mood?

I whipped up a batch of brownies, pulled out some of Frankie’s favorite board games and made the best of this gloomy weekend!

These beauties are my absolute fave with a big glass of milk. The glaze is optional, but come on, if you’re gonna do brownies GO BIG OR GO HOME!

No matter the weather, these sweet treats will brighten any day!
