We ended up following this recipe we found online. The only adjustment I made was I baked it for 30 minutes since it looked too wet at 25 minutes. But they were really good and super fudgy. I would definitely use this recipe again for brownies.
After barely letting the brownies cool, I used my metal heart cookie cutter to cut the brownies. A bit of advice... a metal cookie cutter gets super hot when you place it in a still warm pan of brownies! I was able to cut out a few brownies successfully however.
We'll be doing more bake-alongs this month so make sure to check out the IGGPPC site for details!
