HANDS DOWN, THESE WIN!
With a name like “Basement Brownies,” I had to click on the recipe. You did too, didn’t you? That’s why you’re on this page. If you’re like me, perhaps you had scary visions of Silence of the Lambs running through your head. It rubs the brownies on its skin or else it gets the hose again. Ewwww. But no, don’t you worry. There’s nothing scary-basement about these. Turns out, the original poster got the recipe from her sis-in-law whose father would steal these and hide in the basement eating them all because they were so good.
Brownies so good you’ll steal them away from the ones you love so you can selfishly cram them into your mouth uninterrupted??? Where do I sign up?!? So, I had to make these of course. But I don’t have a basement. As these baked up, my kitchen smelled like heaven from the chocolaty caramely creation coming to life in my oven. Of course, after giving my kids a taste and sending them on their way to play, I grabbed the rest of them and hid in the laundry room. When they asked what I was doing, I simply yelled out, “Laundry! Who wants to help?” No one came in and helped me, so I helped myself to the rest of the brownies. Fair is fair you know. Let’s go to the next page (click the Next button below) to discover how to make these Basement Brownies.
