Like if this guide is helpful

I have been using this recipe for years and it has never failed to impress. As the title suggests, these are very easy to make and anyone can make these, even if you have never baked before because it was one of the first things I ever baked.

Cooks Notes

The easiest way to know if your brownies are done is that you will see the top will become crisp have a matt look. At this point you can take your brownies out let them cool before you cut into squares and eat!

You can always take your brownies out a few minutes early if you are wanting a more gooey finish.. and enjoy them while they are still warm with some vanilla ice cream!
