Fudgey Brownies with Chocolate Chunks
I must confess that often, while I was trying different chocolate brownies recipes I've had many failure as well. Sometimes I would over baked them so the brownies would be too dry, other times the batter would turn out less than perfect and they would rise too much. Yet, no matter of the result, it was still worth the try because once you manage to make the perfect chocolate brownies you seem to forget all the disappointments.
At first it seemed that even this time my attempt to make brownies was doomed to failure. A couple of days before I’d stumbled on an absolutely gorgeous recipe for brownies with chocolate chunks inside! Gorgeous indeed! I had to get down to business right away. However, the very moment I took the pan out of the oven I felt deeply disappointed. Oh bummer, I thought, my delicious chocolate brownies don’t seem as moist as I like them to be. I must’ve left them in the oven a bit longer than I should have! Anyway, aside from my disappointment, I decided to put my camera on a tripod and take some shots.
While I was taking photos, my grandpa started to sneak around me, as he always did when he smells freshly baked sweets, asking a lot questions and giving advice as usual. I offered him a piece, so that he would chill out for a bit. And guess what, a few seconds later silence fell and the grandpa was munching my brownie. Then he asked me: “Vera, may I get some more, please? “Mm, now the whole situation started to seem a bit fishy, so I decided to take a bite myself. OMG, it was absolutely divine! My little brownies may not have looked so good, but surely they tasted like heaven.
This is why I decided to post this on the Internet, so that if you feel like a delicious chocolate dessert, you should know that Fudgy Brownies with Milk Chocolate Chunks are definitely the right choice.

What exact brand of milk chocolate did you use for the chunks? Must not be Hershey’s, because it looks higher than their bar.
