The Best Homemade Brownies

Do you ever have those days when you just need some chocolate?
Well, I was having one of those days and I was craving something chewy and chocolaty! 
I have NEVER made brownies from scratch before. I think Betty knows how to make the perfect brownie so why even attempt to make my own.  I was not in the mood to run to the store to pick up my favorite box so I started looking around the internet and
I came across this recipe claiming they were the best brownies….well they were delicious!

The Best Homemade Brownies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/3 flour
1/2 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and mix with a hand beater.  Pour batter into a grease 13×9 baking dish for about 30 minutes.  Test with a toothpick in the middle to test if it is done completely.

My Notes:
These were great I wouldn’t change a thing.  I think next time I would like to add some Andies mints on the top…yumm!
