Triple Chocolate Pistachio Brownies

These brownies were so hard to make because almost every ingredient in them is just too good not to snack on!

I have a total weakness for a bag of bittersweet chocolate chips. So, when I put off a recipe for a few days, for whatever reason, the chocolate chips don’t tend to survive.

Luckily, I only destroyed half the bag, leaving the perfect amount for my brownie recipe. Win!

These extra chocolatey brownies are super rich and incredibly moist.
