Brownies "Whatever Floats Your Boat"

Love these gooey, chocolatey brownies!  They were soft and fudgey, yet they came out of the pan perfectly.  These brownies would be the perfect base to some good vanilla ice cream.

When I saw these brownies were called..."whatever floats your boat" brownies, I knew they would be fun.  I doubled the recipe, added 1 cup of milk chocolate chips and baked in a 9 x 13 metal pan.  They were great!

I have made these brownie three times now.  I love how easy they are, they yummy flavor and that I always have everything on hand.  I added a cup of milk chocolate chips the first time.  I added toffee pieces the second time and I added a variety of milk, dark and white chocolate chips the third time. All were fabulous! Feel free to add to these brownies "whatever floats your boat".  Add craisins, raisins, pecans, pretzel pieces, peanut butter chips, etc.

I found this recipe over at Food.com.  Please visit for lots of yummy recipes!
