We adapted this brownie recipe from Linda Skeens, the woman-slash-blue ribbon machine who went viral for sweeping awards at a county fair in Kentucky, Virginia. She bulldozed the competition and bagged first, second, and third place for best cookies, candy, and savory bread. That’s on top of her medals for best cake, pie, brownies, jelly, jam, and spaghetti sauce.
With a track record like that, we had to give Lola Linda's Blue Ribbon Brownies a shot.
Using unsweetened tablea yields fudgy, chocolatey brownies that taste just like a hot cup of tsokolate. This recipe delivers maximum results with minimal effort: it’s super easy to make, uses ingredients you already have, and will always turn out delicious.
