Ever since I saw this photo of chocolate brownie squares on sheets of waxed paper, I can't stop thinking about them. That's why I'm making brownies to serve at a beach bonfire I'm hosting in honor of my sister. Brownies are a great portable dessert because they are best when made in advance. They're also a crowd-pleaser: who doesn't love a good fudgy brownie? I'll be using a recipe I've tried before, Food & Wine's salted fudge brownies.
