fat witch brownies
Last year when I was eight I didn’t like brownies. I thought they were too fudgy. Then I discovered Fat Witch Brownies. My mom was making brownies and she said I should try them. I did. They were so good.
They aren’t too chocolatey and the texture is perfect. I like how there is a crispy layer on top – thinner than paper – that melts in your mouth. I prefer the original brownie recipe from the cookbook. I recommend that you try the brownies. I still don’t like any other brownie than Fat Witch. The recipe is really easy. I have made it many times by myself. I encourage you to make them too.
Here are a few tips. An easy trick is that when it says to grease the brownie pan you grease it and then you add parchment paper with two sides hanging out so that once they are out of the oven you can just pull them up and out. To hold down the parchment paper you can use binder clips which can go in the oven with your brownies.
I hope you enjoy making and eating these brownies! Please let me know what your favorite brownies are!
