Brownie Pudding

This is one of my family's favorite dessert to make on Sundays.  Both my husband and I grew up making it and now our kids love making it too.
I posted the recipe here on my blog four years ago, but thought that it deserved an update.  Although there is a cute picture of my little, then six-year-old, daughter holding her bowl of brownie pudding.  Where does time fly?

This dessert is truly magical and super yummy tasting.  First you make a brownie batter, then pour "chocolate water" on top.  While baking, the magic happens and underneath the brownies a chocolate sauce is hiding.

Super yummy topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or eaten plain.  Don't count on any leftovers.
