Chocolate Brownie

This fudgy chocolate brownie has all the power to lift up your mood and feel good about everything in the world!
 
Chocolate-2BBrownie1-1491This recipe should have been posted earlier. Given the number of times I have made it, it should have been there for long. But for some reason or the other, we could not picture it well and that’s the only reason for not sharing this immensely popular recipe of chocolate brownie.
 
If you are in love with baking, then you must have your own choco brownie recipe. I have this one which I have adapted from various sources on net and finally this version evolved.
 

Chocolate-2BBrownie-2B2n-1493This brownie is very dense with a deep chocolate flavor and a crumbly texture at the top. Though my husband is not very fond of the regular chocolate cake, he could not resist the “oh-so-chocolaty” sensation of this particular brownie. So I can bluntly declare that this brownie will please everyone – chocolate-lover or not! Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or a dollop of whipped cream and you will win over everyone’s heart!

Chocolate-2BBrownie-2B3-1505The long weekend is coming to an end and I am definitely not loving it. This extra day-off allows me to spend stress-free time with my family; otherwise the regular weekends are so full of the household chores. But sometimes I feel that I also enjoy being a workaholic; be it my official work or my blog, I never feel tired enough to give up.

May be this is the key thing that I have inherited from my father who loved being a workaholic and still is till date! I just have a very tiny percentage of his tenacity and capability and hope someday I would be as hard-working as him because I strongly believe there is no short-cut to success other than hard work and honesty towards your ambition.

With that note, while I am treating myself with these absolutely delicious choco-brownies, you should also start rewarding yourself for all your achievements, however small it may be!
