Fudgy Saucepan Brownies

"These fudgy brownies are easy to make and travel well," writes Janet Taylor from Mayville, New York. "If you bake them in a disposable foil pan for camping or taking someplace else away from home, you won't have to worry about getting your baking pan back."

    Yum! I was craving for something chocolate and was searching for an easy recipe to make. This is a quick and simple recipe. The brownies were fudgy and yummy. Tasted delicious with a cold glass of milk. Thank you for sharing.

    This is my go-to brownie recipe. It is so easy, and it turns out great every time. Rather than using the microwave, I sometimes actually just melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan on the stove and go from there with the recipe.

    These were better than I thought they would be! I was looking for a way to used up 2 random squares of unsweetened chocolate I had in my pantry and this did the trick!~ Theresa
