Brownies - Thick, Rich, Delicious!

The best brownies ever definitely consist of quality cocoa powder and rich dark chocolate! A hit of coffee and a dollop of sour cream adds moist delicious decadence to these brownies.

It's cold here in the Midwest and baking seems so natural to keep the kitchen warm and toasty. My favorite part of baking is when the baked goods are finished and I can open the oven door and relish in the searing heat pouring from the oven!

One of my good friends lives several states away from me so each year I send him a batch of thick, fudgy and delicious chocolate brownies for his birthday. This occasion was the perfect excuse to warm me right up!

Step 1: Prep for Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9 baking pan and line with parchment paper. Grease parchment paper. Set aside

In a small sauce pan melt butter over low heat. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl add eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Beat well. Set aside.
