Brownies are something we think about constantly. A great brownie is not easy to find, but when you do locate a gooey, dense, super rich brownie that is still warm from the oven, the world suddenly seems beautiful again.

We love brownies that come from all over the country, including “bouchons” (small, dense, chocolatey brownies) from Bouchon Bakery and the dark, fudgy squares at Sundaes & Cones in NYC’s East Village. We also love making amped-up brownies at home, like slutty brownies and chocolate chip cookie dough brownies.

There’s a great big world of fantastic brownies out there. So if you’re looking for some post-lunch inspiration, get up from your desk, find the closest brownie to you, and go H.A.M.
