One of my favorite magazines is Martha Stewart Living. I look forward to it each month and greatly enjoy trying the wonderful recipes and home decor and craft ideas. The other day, while reading the April issue on the bus, I came across this recipe for the "best double-chocolate brownies."
Now, I was heading home that night to make brownies and had a different recipe picked out. However, I was so intrigued by the foolproof recipe that's made again and again by Living's staffers, I knew I had to try it.
I'm glad I did, because these brownies are amazing. They're rich and chocolaty with both a fudgy and cake-like texture. The recipe is quick and easy and the best thing is, you don't even need an electric mixer! Learn how to bake brownies like Martha does after the break.
