VANILLA FUDGE BROWNIES





VANILLA FUDGE BROWNIES

Dense, fudgy brownies that only get better as they age in the refrigerator.  If you are looking for an easy low-carb and gluten-free brownie that also tastes amazing, this brownie is it for sure!  These are rich and one serving easily satisfies (for a while!).  We loved these sweet brownies.

OR If you prefer a super-dense, fudgy brownie made with cocoa instead of melted chocolate:  COCOA BROWNIES
