Recipe by Sparkle 1874
In my opinion, a brownie isn't a brownie unless it has some "bite" to it. It needs to be dense and chewy not "caky". This brownie recipe fits the bill and I've tried many recipies. Although this recipe does not call for frosting...it tastes a lot better with your favorite chocolate icing.

I tried this recipe last night and it is EXACTLY what I was looking for! I love chewy brownies and typically the corners are the only part I truly enjoy. This recipe allows me to eat the entire pan (almost) without having to fight for a corner! I did make one change only because I ran out of white sugar. I substituted approx. 1/2 cup brown sugar to get the full two cups. I also baked about 5 minutes longer, but I think that was due to cooking on the top most rack of my oven, since my oven tends to burn on the lower racks. Amazing recipe!! My husband has claimed it better then box(his previous favorite) and requests them to be made often!! Thanks!!!
