What’s your favorite classic dessert? Brownies are definitely mine! Sure, cookies and cupcakes are tasty, but nothing beats the rich chocolate flavor of a freshly-baked, fudgy brownie. If I see a table full of desserts at a party, you can bet that I’ll be reaching for the brownies first. You really cannot go wrong with a brownie in my opinion. Even a sub-par brownie is still great!
Despite my never-ending love for brownies, I do admit that they can sometimes seem a bit plain. After all, they’re pretty much always the same, unlike cookies or cupcakes, where you can change up the flavor. Chocolate is delicious, of course, but eating the same thing over and over will eventually become boring, no matter how tasty the food is that you’re eating. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to escape the monotony of brownies: adding different layers or toppings! For example, you can add crushed Oreos to the top of a pan of brownies to give them a nice cookies ‘n cream flavor as well as a tasty crunch. It’s a simple way to make your good brownies amazing!
