best brownies


This recipe is one of my all time favourites. It's my mom's go-to brownie recipe. The icing that makes them oh-so-delectable. You wanna know the secret? Using a food processor and adding in a splash of hot coffee. Honestly, it's the best icing you'll ever taste - and that's saying something coming from me. I think these would be perfect for Valentine's Day if you're looking for something easy but a sure hit. If you're like me and without a sweetheart, I'd maybe suggest sneaking in a couple drops of love potion if you must ;)
