Happy first day of February! We’re officially a month and a half away from daylight savings beginning! Bring on the late sunsets and warmer weather! I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that Winter continues to be weird. We can actually see the grass! That’s super unusual for this time of year.

I don’t take Groundhog day seriously. I’ve always figured, he’s going to see his shadow no matter what, since there are SO many lights. But, apparently it has more to do with the weather – cloudy vs sunny. Regardless of what the oversized rodent supposedly decides…sees or doesn’t see… Groundhog Day the movie is definitely part of my Tuesday plans. Anyone else? It’s one of those love/hate movies for me.

Totally unrelated but we started watching Mr Robot recently. I kept forgetting to schedule it to record when the first season was airing, so we’re catching up. I was actually reminded about it after seeing it win an award at the Golden Globes earlier this month. If you like psychological dramas, you should definitely check it out. You have until Summer to catch up before the next season is supposed to start up.

I’ll admit it… I’ve always been a box mix brownie lover. They’re just so easy and the results are consistent. Both a huge plus. A lot of homemade recipes seemed like too much work, or didn’t give me the exact results I wanted…

Until now!

I’m not even remotely joking…These are super easy, extra fudgy homemade brownies…packed with three varieties of chocolate! There’s so much to love about them. And, they taste SO much better than box mix brownies.

These triple chocolate one-bowl brownies will absolutely become your new go to recipe!

Be sure to add these crowd pleasing fudgy homemade brownies to your dessert plans! I promise you won’t regret it!

    These look delectable! I usually reach for a box, too, when it comes to brownies, but these sound so easy. And, hello? Look at them! Yum!

    Hello, i love your recipe. I’ve made it so many times. Quick question, if i want to make in a half sheet pan, is double the recipe enough? Thank you

    • #
      Rachel — February 1, 2020 at 9:29 am

      So glad you’ve enjoyed them! As far as doubling goes… the height of your brownies may differ slightly in that pan but it should be fine otherwise. Check your time as you’re baking since that may vary from a smaller batch.

    These are my go to and favorite brownies! add them today and as always they were a hit! I doubled the recipe and made in a 13×9. I think I may have overdone them though today but everyone loved them. I baked for about 25-30 minutes. Does that seem about right? These truly are the best brownies I’ve ever made. Thank you for this recipe!
