For Serious Chocolate Lovers Only

Around our house we are constantly seeking for the 'Best Ever' of our favorite items.

For instance, a little store named Weiser's Markets near our house has the Best Ever Cream-filled Donuts.  Lapp Valley Farms has the Best Ever Chocolate Milk.  We also found how to make the Best Ever French Toast.

I think I may have found the recipe for the Best Ever Chocolate Brownies.  Actually, these were brought to a picnic by another mom and I begged her to send me the recipe.

Be warned.  These are very, very rich.  These are for serious chocolate lovers.  They are amazing.

Best Ever Chocolate Brownies

1 cup butter, melted
3 cups sugar
1 T. vanilla
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup cocoa
1 tsp. salt 
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 pan.  Cream together butter & sugar.  Add vanilla & eggs. Add dry ingredients.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Bake 35-40 minutes.

They are so dense, moist, and a bit naughty.

Also, I wasn't able to share this picture yesterday, but here is my bench painting in progress...

I did finish the first coat yesterday.  I still need to lightly sand it and give it a second coat.  Hopefully, I'll have a picture of the finished product for you on Monday.  So far, I'm really liking the results!

Oh, and no weight loss update this Friday....because actually I gained a couple pounds back.  (See recipe above).  Anyway, next week is a new week!
Have a great weekend!


  1. OOOOOO....I am so trying that recipe tomorrow. I HEART CHOCOLATE. LOL Lovely bench and what a transformation!

  2. Thanks for the recipe, Karen! They are in my oven right now! Can't wait for a scrumptious bite with some vanilla ice cream...only from yoder's, of course!

  3. Oh...can you say decadent? I think I can smell them...

    Your bench looks wonderful, what a change! Gotta admire your tackling it with 4 youngsters underfoot. Look forward to seeing the completed project!

  4. Oh my goodness those brownies!!!
    Wish I had one warm and ready for when the girlies go to bed!:)
    Enjoy the night and the bench looks great so far

  5. I have made those brownies for a few years. They are one of my families favorites. We love them with ice cream also. Might as well add a few more calories.

  6. Just an update. Everyone loved the brownies! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Those brownies look yummy....I will have to try sometime. I love the bench! I am constantly looking at furniture that needs to be spruced up...and hubby is constantly talking me out of it! Good for you for doing it! It's beautiful!

  8. LOVE the bench xoxo good job

  9. Mmmm, yummy brownies! I also have a few "best ever" and my boys get upset when I try something else and it is just not as good:-) I don't have a "best ever" brownies so I think I'll try it out!
