When I get the craving for something super rich and chocolatey, I always reach for this super brownie recipe.  I found this recipe for “Brooke’s Bombshell Brownies” many years ago on one of my favorite recipe websites All Recipes.com.  It is super easy to make and is chocolate lovers dream. Warning – for those mommies trying to lose weight – these brownies are super addictive and it is hard to stop after just one.

Extra “Super” Tips:  
(1) I always like to decorate my brownies with a little bit of icing and sprinkles for parties and special occasions.  The kids especially love it.

(2) Also, for a little extra variation to the recipe, you can add some nuts, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips or butterscotch chips.  It still tastes equally as yummy.
