Cocoa Brownies

Cakes and cupcakes and candies can occupy you for a while, but there's nothing like a brownie.  It's the perfect dessert.  These are pretty close to a perfect version.  Dense, fudgy, and decadent without being so rich as to prevent you eating the whole thing, which is such a relief.

Hard to believe, but this is all it takes to achieve perfection.  Who knew?

Not pictured: the egg that rolled off the counter and splattered everywhere or the huge dent in the middle of the finished brownies because a box of popsicles tumbled on top when I put them in the freezer to cool faster.  I did not lick brownie off the corner of the popsicle box.  That did not happen.
