These delicious chocolate gingerbread brownies have a sweet combination of dark chocolate and a hint of spice, and are totally unforgettable!
Who else is getting really into holiday baking right now? These chocolate gingerbread brownies are perfect for this time of year, and they taste totally amazing. I really think these are some of the best brownies I’ve ever made! The chocolate and gingerbread flavors are the perfect combination in these luscious brownies. They have the most amazing chewy and fudgy texture, just the right touch of spice, and are decadent without being too sweet.
The brownie batter mixes up quickly in one bowl, and you don’t even need a mixer to make them! They’re a delicious adaptation of my favorite brownie recipe, and just as easy to make! These brownies are perfect with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot cocoa on the side. They’re very rich, so a small piece is plenty for me, but they are so so good! My whole family absolutely loved these brownies!
