Gourmet Girl's Famous Decadent Rich and Gooey Saucepan Brownies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by gourmet_girl

Been making this recipe since I was a teenager, it is very easy and tastes a million times better than a mix! These are not cake style brownies, they are very moist and gooey, chewy, chocolaty and delicious! Pecans are my favorite but you can use any kind of nuts you like, macadamia nuts are wonderful in these too.

Exactly what I was looking for. I needed a gooey brownie recipe that called for cocoa powder instead of chocolate squares. I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa and stirred in a handful of chocolate chips instead of the nuts. Easy and fabulous. Thank you for posting!
