Fudgy Brownies

 

 

Gooey, fudgy brownies !! There must be very few people who doesn’t get tempted by these chocolate beauties. The mere mention of it makes me drool. Having seen a couple of Fb posts on brownies, I was so tempted to make them. Found an easy recipe at Inspired Taste . On checking the pantry, I had all the ingredients in place, including the pecan nuts, which was procured from Big Basket. I always rely on Big Basket to buy my regular supply of Dairy products, Rice products and gourmet items.

While cutting the brownies to pieces, I couldn’t stop myself from helping with a piece of those gooey brownies. It took a lot of self control for me to not reach out for another helping. 🙂 Indeed a keeper.
