Double Chocolate Chunk Brownies

Sometimes you need something sweet to get through the week, so to help you over the weekday hump, today is brownie day! Double Chocolate Chunk Brownie day to be precise. For a chocolate lover what is better than brownies? Being choco-holics ourselves, we can answer that question.... more chocolate! These brownies are super easy to make and will satisfy your coco craving without a doubt. Here in the Petruno household dessert is always a major food group and we are always looking for yummy treats to serve after a hearty meal. After making complicated tarts, upside down cakes and custards, we wanted something simple that could be thrown together and tossed in the oven yet still be mind bendingly good. These brownies bended the mind and easy to throw together, in other words these brownies were just the ticket. The key to these tasty treats are the chunks of chocolate that float inconspicuously throughout. They simply melt in your mouth and are perfect when washed down with a nice tall glass of icy cold milk.
