Traditional Brownie

With holiday season around the corner, I have been busy baking edible gifts for friends. This year I tried out few new recipes making my own tweaks and this brownie is one among them. It was a great hit and I think I can confidently say this is the best brownie I have baked so far. Before I go to the recipe let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
