These brownies are too good to take to a picnic! My sweet-tooth DH would never allow it! I made a half recipe using a makeshift dbl boiler to melt the butter/choc mix & otherwise made as written. They cut like a brownie, look like an extra-rich choc cake & taste like moist & chewy choc heaven! Frosting, powd sugar or whipped cream would be definite overkill, but I'm thinking frozen yoghurt would be TDF. Thx for sharing this spec sweet treat w/us. :-)
ok so i wasn't too fond of these the first day, as I added frosting that needed to be refridgerated and the brownies were really thick. HOWEVER, once they got to room temperature (as they should be eaten i think) they were amazing and i got several requests for the recipe! delicious!
Super-yummy-chewy-fudgey/ with a hint of spicy-ness. Beefier than the average-joe brownie. Tender-rich...I could go on and on... Oh and BTW, they freeze quite nicely.
