Fast Fudgy Freezer Brownies
To me there are few treats better in the world than a well made and frosted brownie. YUM! Because today is National Chocolate Day (and coincidentally my wedding anniversary) I wanted to share this really fast and easy fudgy brownie recipe with you today. It may just become your go-to brownie recipe. It has become that for me!
One thing that I like to do with leftover brownies is freeze them in an airtight container. Then whenever I want a quick treat I can grab one out of the freezer and eat it immediately. Frozen brownies are seriously so good.
