Brownies to Make a Chocoholic's Dream Come True

Chocolate fudge brownies

I love chocolate. You probably love chocolate. I don’t quite trust anyone who claims to dislike chocolate. I worked in a chocolate shop in college, and people would ask me if I got sick of it; nope, it had the opposite effect. I liked it more, in more forms, than I had before.

This recipe sounds as amazing as anything the accomplished chocolatier who owned the shop could cook up; it uses five kinds of chocolate. That's right, five. Don't panic, though; you probably have everything in your pantry to make it right now, and if not, you can find it in under 10 minutes at the grocery store. It takes exactly four steps to prepare, and can be made in under 15 minutes. If you use a disposable pan, cleanup is easier (even easier if you lick the bowl, not that we line up for the privilege in my house).
