From the moment I saw these posted at my friend, Joan’s site, Chocolate, Chocolate and More I knew I had to try them!
I will be honest, typically if I am making  brownies,  it’s in a rush, and it’s the boxed kind.
If I want to jazz said box brownies up, my trick is to top them with my Chocolate Ganache!
But I saw her post for these and how much her family loved them, and I trust Joan, I mean, her site is pretty much ALL about CHOCOLATE, right?!
I made them, they were rich and fudgy, and downright tasty!
How many of you remember the Adam Sandler Chris Farley skit from SNL many years ago, when he sang the song “Lunch Lady Land?”  
I mean, seriously? I haven’t been able to eat a sloppy Joe or work in the lunch room at school without singing this song!
(yes, my kids LOVE me! 😉
So, of course, the night we had these for dessert…we had Sloppy Joe’s for dinner!
