Fall is among us, chilly days are upon us, and lazy days will soon become of us.
So what does that mean, exactly?
Well, something tells me the holiday season will exhaust you at one point and then you’ll want a day to just relax and eat brownies. Am I close?
I’m always looking for that simple recipe that I can just whip up really quick and eat. So I came across this simple brownie recipe from Crazy for Crust’s blog. If you like the chewy, rich, fudgy type of brownies—this recipe is especially for you!
The great thing about this recipe is that it prompts you to make enough mix to save for later or pack up to make as gifts.
How’s that for sweetening up your lazy day?
You’ll basically only need a few ingredients:
  • Flour
