Hands down, these are the best brownies ever!
Besides being incredibly delicious, these brownies stay soft for-EVER. You can thank the buttermilk for that. You never have to worry (like I do) that because your husband won't eat sweets with you, that you won't be able to eat the whole pan of brownies before they go stale. This is the kind of dessert that you could pop in the microwave for 8 seconds and it will taste like it's fresh out of the oven! You can totally fool you friends and family into thinking you bake fresh goodies every day!
I've been staring at this picture so long that I am still debating about getting my third brownie for the day. But thanks to The Biggest Loser (which I'm watching right now), I'm fighting for the willpower to withstand the brownie temptation at almost midnight.
