When I was pregnant with Charlotte I had two cravings. Apples and homemade triple chocolate brownies. I felt like that was a good balance of cravings, right? I made these triple chocolate brownies a lot! They’re simple to make and when a craving hits you can be eating them within an hour! Love, love, love them!

I made them recently, and no, I’m not pregnant. I was just hungry. Promise.

Triple Chocolate Brownies

The recipe for these brownies comes from the Junior League of Grand Rapids Grand Temptations Cookbook. You can purchase it here. It’s a lovely cookbook featuring recipes from members of the Junior League of Grand Rapids, as well as little side notes about our beautiful state of Michigan. Our state truly is a treasure!

I keep a stash of bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate bars in the pantry so I can whip these up anytime. They’re just so easy and delicious! Enjoy!
