My son prefers these to any other brownie around! Please try these and see! Experiment with different flavoured chips (minis won't sink to the bottom!) also, see at the end of the recipe for a Skor bits substitute version.

These brownies are absolutely delicious! I used regular sour cream and white chocolate chips since that is what I had. They are fudgey and cake like at the same time. Very chocolatey!
