These rich, fudgy brownies are going to impress anyone after the very first bite. These delights are slightly firm and a teeny bit crisp on the tops and edges, but gooey and fudgy in the center. The chocolate chips have melted slightly but give just the slightest crunch and the creamy perfume of bananas permeates the whole thing – it is seriously the best classic brownie we've seen in a long time.
