Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies

Brownies! What can be a better sure-thing dessert that everyone loves? Brownies, of course!

I have my usual go-to brownie recipe, but when I saw this one, I had to try it. I happened to have a bit of dark chocolate that needed to be used, so this recipe was just the thing. The result? FANTASTIC! And, this may now become my go-to brownie recipe from now on!
