These DARK CHOCOLATE BROWNIES are everyone’s favourite!

This recipe for DARK CHOCOLATE BROWNIES is absolutely fantastic. We want to send a huge thank you to our friend Liza from TO-GO CATERING in Toronto. She created this scrumptious sweet treat that weekend guests just can’t get enough of.

Here’s why we suggest having a pan of these baked off, at all times:

Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Brownies

I can’t say too much about the recipe since I’ve left this one to the experts. There is one optional ingredient: nuts.

Dark chocolate and chopped walnuts for the brownie recipe

I asked Liza about including them, and she said you can if you wish, suggesting a cup of chopped pecans or walnuts. I couldn’t decide between the two, so I prepared them with half a cup of each.

The chocolate and butter is melted in a double boiler

I will tell you this – we were halfway through making the recipe and shooting the video when I started thinking, “Oh my gosh, this is totally fabulous!

The brownies come out of the pan easily using parchment paper

I’m going to make them again next weekend.” All that before I’d even baked them! Just goes to show, every great treat begins with a stellar recipe.

Now, if you’d like to serve this treat in a more decadent fashion, why not prepare our HOMEMADE VANILLA ICE CREAM and then add a little scoop right before you serve. A hot chocolate or caramel sauce would also work perfectly with this – just saying!

All of the brownies cut and set out on the tray to be enjoyed
