For some time, I've been trying to find the ultimate brownies recipe. I was looking for something rich, chocolatey, moist and not overly sweet. I've tried out a few recipes, some from this site. Some were good, some were mediocre, but none were quite what I was looking for. Then I found this recipe in my town's local newspaper, in a section called "Mayah's corner of sweets". I figured I might as well try it, and I'm very glad that I did. Description and recipe were translated by yours truly from Hebrew into English. I would suggest using a good quality chocolate, with at least 60% cocoa solids. "Mayah's" orginal description: "The most chocolatey American baked good that I can think of. Excellent with a hot cup of tea or coffee in cold weather. Heart warming. For chocolate lovers only..."
