Chocolate Chip Brownies

I have never been one to pass up chocolate, expect if it has nuts in it. I hate nuts and waiting for the brownies to come out of the oven. And how do you make an already yummy treat even better? Add more chocolate. Chocolate chips and a silky smooth mocha glaze. YUMMY!!

I blame my sweet tooth on my parents. I can ‘sneaking’ into my dad’s top dresser draw and taking his chocolate cover cherries during the holiday’s. But I would never open the box first, I waited until it was open. Or getting that chocolate bar when I went food shopping with mom.

I think I have a chocolate problem. I wonder if they have a support group for chocolate lovers?
