Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies - Macrina Bakery

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by swissms

These brownies are dense, yet cloud-like—fudgy in the center and crunchy on the outside. Eggs make these brownies light and soufflé-like, chocolate makes them dense, and the minimal amount of flour (2 tablespoons) makes them fudgy.

Yummy brownies!! I made exactly as written except 17 yo DS wanted them frosted, so added some chocolate buttercream frosting!! These are so good and rich, so one small piece was plenty to satisfy my sweet tooth. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.
