Perfect Chocolate Brownies 

I posted this recipe back in September and I was so happy with how they turned out. If you remember, it was my first baking recipe that I created on my own. (Click on the link at the end of the post to see the original recipe)

I wanted to make them again for today’s Super Bowl party, but I made a few tweaks and I think they turned out even better!

1. I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour
2. I added 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips
