1 tsp vanilla

I’ve never come across a chocolate treat I didn’t like. Pretty sure you could cover anything in chocolate and I’d enjoy it. That’s probably why we had an entire chocolate bar at our wedding. I’m talking chocolate truffles, chocolate cake, chocolate covered fruit, and my personal favorite, chocolate salami (it wasn’t actually meat it was more of chocolate and Biscotti chunks in the shape of salami and it was incredible).

See, I got carried away talking about chocolate and y’all just came here for brownies. In my personal opinion, brownies need to be FUDGY (which yes, I know is not an actual word but I’m making it a word with this here bite-sized treat). They also need to have some extra chocolate chips thrown in there because, well, I freakin’ love chocolate.

Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies

These are made with sweet potatoes and a little date nectar which gives it that delectable sweetness that’s all natural. They are great for any party, gathering, or just to keep all for yourself (I won’t tell). I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I enjoyed munching on the chocolate chips while creating it.
