Brownies

Making a basic fudgey chocolate brownie is so simple it’s almost like stirring together box mix. All you need at minimum is a bowl, scale and spoon.

If you happen to have a kitchenaid or electric hand mixer, you could take it up a notch and whisk the eggs and sugar together before folding the melted chocolate and butter in. That still gives you a fudgey product that melts in your mouth.
