>No, not that kind. Regular old-fashioned, homemade brownies. For some reason, I cannot eat brownies made from a mix. I can always tell. It’s the only baked good that I can tell the difference. There is this gelatin texture/flavor to the mix brownies. It has a weird sort of foreign chewiness.
The kind my mom used to make when I was a kid (and still does) uses cocoa powder and not squares of bittersweet chocolate. Many fond memories were made while opening that can of cocoa powder. Of course, now the can we used to have to pry open with a spoon is a plastic container with a paper safety seal that doesn’t pull off in one tear.
The brownies still taste yummy though. I can smell the warm chocolatey aroma even now.
