Brownies. Doesn't it make you happy just to read the word? Brownies. Yum. Plus, they're a virtually foolproof dessert: Not only are they super-easy to make (one pan! no rolling or cutting of dough!), brownies can be customized for almost any taste buds.
Perfect example? These Raspberry Swirl Brownie Bites from DashRecipes.com. The secret here is simple (raspberry jam!), but the taste is simply amazing -- and you can even use brownie mix to save time!
