Rich and Chewy Chocolate Brownies
Rocky Road Squares

(Jenny Harper) One of the first things I learned to bake was a pan of brownies. Since they're easier to make, I still rely on brownies when I need to quickly bake something sweet.

This fudgy treat is a rich reward for everyday occasions-and a great beginners' baking project. Moist, chewy brownies are suitable for potlucks, brown bag lunches, or for that "I forgot I was supposed to bring cookies!" occasion-anytime something sweet is called for.

Rich and Chewy Chocolate Brownies made with dark chocolate mix together quickly, and Rocky Road Squares are even easier with a fudge brownie mix. Make either in disposable pans for easy transport and cleanup.
