These brownies are almost as easy as a box mix, and so delicious! They fall somewhere between a fudgey brownie and a cakey brownie, they're super thick and chocolate-y, and overall they're sort the platonic ideal of "brownie." We ate our pan way too fast, but these are hard to resist! Pictured here with a scoop of mango lassi frozen yogurt from the Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream Desserts cookbook...mmmmmm. The perfect pairing!
