Decadent Brownies

Brownies are my ulitmate weakness. It doesn't matter what time of day it is, I can always enjoy a delicious chocolate brownie. When I was little and baking with my mom, I always wanted to lick the bowl. I'd complain if I thought she wasn't leaving enough batter for me to have. I'd tell her that when I was old and living on my own, I would eat the whole bowl of raw batter! Now, I realize that if I do that I'll have to work out for hours to prevent it from sticking to my stomach and thighs.

Normally brownies are characterized by either being cakey or fudgey; however I don't think these brownies really fit 100% into either of those groups. They are too moist to be considered cakey, but not heavy enough to be considered fudgey...but absolutely delicious. The batter is so chocolatey, I really had to force myself to bake the batter, and not just eat the whole bowl raw. Mom would be proud.

*I used the Perfect Brownie baking pan for these, which is how I actually managed to get perfectly shaped brownies. (Thanks Mom!)
