Yum! This isn't the brownie recipe I choose when I'm serving it plain but the lack of sweetness is the truly perfect vehicle for toppings, frosting and embellished brownies. You'll love them!!

These brownies are my entry in the Bethlehem Fair of Connecticut. I believe the judges will appreciate the less than sweet and very dark and fudgey texture. I did not include the nuts. Many people have taste tested them and loved them, some have said a Kahlua glaze would be a nice addition, but the little old lady judges might be taken back with the alcohol flavor.

Whoooooo, were these REALLY intense on the chocolate. Actually for my taste it was too much wonderful fudginess (I am sure that would seem impossible to a real chocolate lover.) If you are looking for a Super Duper chocolate fudge brownie, I would strongly consider making these.

These are the best fudgy brownies I have tried to date. I used ghirardelli double chocolate chips for the chocolate. They are so chocolatey and fudgy and gooey-I almost thought they werent done, but after cooling they turned out fine. Definetly worth more than 5 stars!

I have to say, out of all the brownie recipes I have tried this tops my list! They were nice and fudgy, just what I was looking for, not like other recipes where you just end up with chocolate cake like brownies. They didn't last very long in my house and co-workers thought they were great! The only thing that was requested of me was to maybe try this recipe with some frosting on top, however the brownies don't need it. Maybe next time I make them I will try the frosting idea but there will definitely be a next time. These were awesome!!

This recipe makes a rich, super-chocolatey brownie that lacks the chewiness of other brownie recipes and has more of a cake consistency. I made the recipe as directed but omitted the nuts and cut back on the sugar by 1/4 cup. The brownies were sweet enough without the additional sugar. I also used semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate. This recipe was a hit with the girls in the house but not the guys. The girls (myself included) loved the chocolatey taste and fudgy consistency, while the guys thought the amount of chocolate was overpowering and excessively rich. We will keep searching for our "home brownie recipe" that everyone in the house likes. Thank you for posting.

I used Ghiradelli's 60% dark cacao chips and the full amount of sugar. These were lusciously dark, especially with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries. Went together quickly and are totally worth making again.

Oh wow! Definitely delicious! I used sweet German bakers chocolate and didn't see the note about the sugar, so I used the full amount of sugar - and they are unbelievable! I used a chocolate drizzle to finish the brownie - I will definitely make these again!

These are so easy and yummy! Not alot of work, so it's not like you would rather use a mix. I didn't have any oil, so this recipe sounded perfect!!!! They coulda been alittle sweeter for my tastes, so I will not cut back next time on the sugar like suggested if using semi-sweet. That's just my tastes though. The recipe was moist and yummy otherwise....right on target.
