Brownies are sometimes difficult for me to bake because they never seem to cook through all the way or they aren’t done in the required amount of time the box says. Yesterday, I took them out of the oven after 35 minutes and thought they were done and ended up having to put them back into the oven for about 25 minutes longer because the center of the brownies were still very wobbly. I thought they were going to end up kind of dry, but they didn’t. Does anybody have any tips for cooking brownies properly?
Anything that says S’mores on it these days I’m pretty much hooked and have to try it. I went to a pizza place and they had a S’mores dessert pizza there but by the time I got done eating I was pretty full. Should have had dessert first I guess. I did not follow this recipe exactly because I didn’t have any cocoa powder. Used a box mix of brownies and just drizzled some melted chocolate on the top of them. Yep, they tasted like a S’more.
