I made brownies today. Not just any brownies but the best brownies from a package that you can make. I have serious doubts as to whether homemade, from scratch brownies could be any better than these, despite my serious skills in the kitchen. They are rich, fudgey, dense and very chocolaty. Perfect. Raised in a house where Hershey's Special Dark wasn't dark enough, I know brownies. There are tales of my mother gorging herself on an entire pan while she was pregnant with me.
The only thing that could possibly make them any better (besides handfuls of chocolate chips) would be this pan,
from The Bakers Edge. Two crispy chewy edges in each serving! How good would that be, right? (Christmas is coming. Hint, hint.)
Anyway, these perfect brownies are going to surprise you. They are fat-free (although using real butter to grease the pan may defeat the purpose) and so simple to make. All it takes is the package of brownie mix and one container of vanilla yogurt. Mix, bake, and mmmmmm, brownies.
And the secret?
No Pudge. No kidding!
