I'm going to go out on a limb here and say something pretty radical: I think I might prefer brownies to cookies. I mean, it's hard to screw up a brownie. At a basic level there's always chocolate, it's usually dense and gooey, and it's totally fine to eat them cold out of the fridg. In fact, I don't think I've ever met a brownie I didn't like.
While I'm perfectly content to make brownies from the back of the box, I also enjoy making them from scratch. Looking for a new recipe that will make your friends and family praise the ground you walk on? The internet has spoken. I have found the most popular brownie recipe on Pinterest and it's going to make you very happy.
This salted caramel brownie recipe from Something Swanky is the most popular brownie recipe on Pinterest. It has been saved on the platform over one million times. Uh, yeah, that's a lot of people. Other popular brownie recipes include these healthy brownies from Chelsea's Apron and these lunch lady brownies from Life in the Lofthouse.
Ashton, the creator of the salted caramel brownies, describes them as "a super thick and fudgy brownie filled with chocolate chips and topped with a sticky layer of salted caramel." The brownies get their dense, fudgy texture from a lot of butter and sugar. Ashton also suggests letting the caramel sit on the brownies overnight so it seeps into the brownie to make it even more fudgy. I like her style.
