Fudgy Brownies

These sweet, chewy brownies get their rich flavor from both cocoa and dark chocolate, but they're lower in fat than traditional brownies because the recipe calls for a low-fat milk, fewer eggs, and a reduced amont of sugar and butter.

Ingredients

  • 4.5 ounces all-purpose flour (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
