This recipe is but the latest in my quest to find the perfect brownie. The texture of these brownies is great, but I think they are way too sweet considering the recipe only uses semisweet chocolate. I would either cut the amount of sugar in half, or use 3 or 4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate in the brownie batter before adding the chocolate chips. I used Nestle's chocolate chunks to make these which I will never do again (I learned I don't like Nestle for baking). I will definitely make these again, but with the changes said earlier.
Thanks SueL for posting this recipe. I totally agree with angelfan, this is the best home made brownies I have ever tasted. I didnt use chocolate chips for the whole recipe, I used Dove dark chocolate bar (250g) and made up the 360g called for in the recipe with chocolate chips and I also added a full cup of chocolate chips instead of the remaining 1-1/4 cup of chocolate chips. I didnt use any nut this time (but will likely use walnut the next time). I dont have the conventional oven but used a Tefal electric oven instead which needed another extra 25mins to bake at 180 deg Celcius. The brownies turned out fantastically moist, rich, aromatic ..simply heavenly :) Thanks, its definitely a '2-thumbs up' recipe!
Melt in your mouth, sweet comfort, chocolate fix, book mark receipe good! Puts the smile back on your face.
I made this recipe on 2/6/11 for the " Comfort Food "event in the Food Photo Forum. After mixing together all the ingredients I couldn't resist a taste of the batter, it was really very sweet.After they cooled,I did a " Quality Taste Test "expecting sweet brownie,but alas it wasn't as sweet as I had expected.During baking, the chocolate chips settled to the bottom of the pan. Which made for a dense bottom and hard to cut through. I did however have another brownie today and it seemed a bit more on the sweeter side.Thank you for taking the time to post and " Keep Smiling :) "
I misread the directions and melted all of the chocolate chips instead of just 3/4 cup, so I added extra chocolate chips at the end (about 3/4 cup extra). I had to bake it longer so it wasn't too gooey. I thought my mistake was a good one--it was just chocolaty enough. I'm picky about brownies, so I think this is a really good recipe. Next time I want to try Ghiradelhi chocolate chips because I think it would be even better!
Batter was delicious! And brownies (once baked) were just as good!
My family thought these were good, but not amazing. They came out a little light--not quite as dark fudgie/chocolatey as we would have liked. I may try them again, melting a full cup of the chocolate chips and/or adding a little cocoa.
These were wonderful. I followed the ingredients exactly like they are listed here. Everything turned out great. Thanks for posting!
Baked this brownie recipe now for the 5th time & friends and family love it. I too make it w/o nuts and it's very good!
Great recipe, I made it without the nuts, since my grandaughter is allergic and she loved it. This was a moist and chewy brownie, great served with ice cream. I would definetly make it again and again. This is a recipe that is a keeper. Thanks..
