Gingerbread Brownie RecipeThis time of year, I’m up for gingerbread everything. One of my favorite ways to update gingerbread is to add in a bit of chocolate – like with this Gingerbread Brownie recipe.Gingerbread Brownie Recipe

Brownies can be one of the hardest desserts to get right, though. Fudgy brownies can easily end up cakey, and it can be difficult to get that perfect brownie chew, which is why brownie mixes are so popular!

These Gingerbread Brownies have that perfect brownie chewiness at the edges but are soft in the middle. They are a yummy cross between gingerbread and a traditional brownie, and the molasses and warm spices make them a welcome addition on any cookie tray.

And speaking of cookie trays, this week I’ll be sharing a new cookie, brownie, or bar recipe each day to offer some ideas for new recipes to add to your holiday rotation.

    These were so delicious, my kids ate the whole pan in one night! Do you have a recipe for regular brownies with this same awesome chewy texture?
