Chocolate is one of the addictions that I openly admit to having, I seriously can’t go too long without having some sort of chocolate. I know other people love chocolate too but most of them cringe a little when they see how much chocolate is in some of the things that I love. My wife likes chocolate but not too much chocolate, like when I get a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache frosting filled with chocolate chips she tends to only eat a small portion where I am like Kirby and open my mouth to vacuum the whole thing in. So these triple chocolate brownies are the perfect thing to satisfy my chocolate cravings.

This is another recipe that we kind of fell into by accident, Brittany was working on setting up a Simple Princess Party and was making chocolate cake in a jar. So she wondered if making the cake in a jellyroll pan instead of a cake pan would make it easier to cut out the circles of cake to fit into the jars. I said let’s give it a try so we did, baking it for a shorter amount of time then called for, it turned out to be just like brownies. These triple chocolate brownies made the perfect chocolate “cake” in a jar!
I didn’t own a jelly roll pan until recently and now I love using it all the time, if you need one too try this Nordic Ware pan from Amazon for about $10. We also used 8 ounce mason jars for these, to cut the circles I just pressed the rim of an upside down mason jar into the cake to get the perfect size.
The “cake” turned out to have a nice thin chewy crust just like the perfect brownies do and was moist and delicious inside. The chocolate chips melt in your mouth but you can pick these triple chocolate brownies up by hand and enjoy them without making a mess. These are great for parties and everyone wanted to know the recipe because they were awesome just by themselves but put some cream cheese frosting on these babies and O.M.G they will kill any craving you have for sweets instantly!
