I always save room for dessert, and for the ultimate in game-day sweet treats, Double Chocolate Brownies are a chocoholics’ dream.

The hint of almond extract makes the icing melt in your mouth.

Be sure to sneak a taste hot out of the oven, as they are my absolute weakness – one bite is never enough! Be sure to make them in a large pan and cut in squares to feed your whole tailgate crowd.

My friend insisted these were the best and easiest brownies, and she was right as everyone goes wild when I make them.

Tips for making this easy chocolate brownies recipe allergy free

To make this easy chocolate brownies recipe gluten free, use a gluten free brownie mix.

If you have any dairy, gluten or nut allergies, it’s best to use a allergy free chocolate chip like Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.

If you’re dairy free, you can substitute a vegan buttery spread instead of real butter and unsweetened coconut milk for the skim milk.

Finally, if you have a nut allergy, leave out the almond extract in this Ultimate Double Chocolate Brownies Recipe. You could add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or rum instead.
