I was the QUEEN of brownie boxes. Middle school Friday night was a date night with my sister & a Ghiradelli brownie box. @LIV can verify. If you're feeling bold though, try this from scratch brownie recipe. It's FUDGY. So cake lover brownie people?? this recipe isn't for you. (& I'm sorry, but I simply don't understand you "prefers cake-like-brownies" people... to each their own, I guess).
R E C I P E
5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips. OR 1/4 cup smashed Oreos OR BOTH
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Melt chocolate with butter (in double boiler or in microwave with 30 second intervals)
Once just melted (don't go overboard), stir in the sugar with a rubber spatula
Stir stir stir - it will be grainy at first, keep stirring
Add the eggs & stir in between. The batter will start to look glossy & pretty & lovely
