There is nothing better than delicious and classic dense brownies. Chocolate lovers will adore the following recipe. This brownie is so chocolatey, it almost resembles a block of homemade fudge. Instead of frosting, we added powdered sugar so as to not take away from the brownie’s decadent flavor. As a result, you have yourself a rich and delicious dessert option. It is best to cut the brownie into smaller squares because of the dense texture.
