I love chocolate Brownies and this recipe is easy to whip up. I make this all in one saucepan, I melt the butter and cocoa on the stove top on low then let it cool for 5 min. You can alternatively do it in the microwave and melt butter then stir in cocoa and let cool for 5 min. I add white chocolate chips but you can add dark or milk choc chips … or all 3 types if desired.
I do make these at Christmas. I cut the brownies in to triangles to look like Christmas trees. On top I drizzle white chocolate or color the white chocolate with red or green. You can also use a pretzel or candy cane as the tree trunk.
Make a batch, cut it up and put in to freezer (can freeze for about 2 months) and grab one out for dessert or as a treat. Tastes great heated up with ice cream and caramel sauce on top.
