I made the recipe with the ingredients described (no substitutions), despite thinking that 1 oz isn't a lot of chocolate for a brownie. I was right - in the finished product you wouldn't know it was there. This was fine as a cake (pecans being the strongest flavour), but it didn't have the texture of a brownie. I don't usually put toppings on brownies because they just don't need it, but I did for this one out of curiosity (and because I love malt flavour), but it was too sweet for my taste. My teeth are still aching!
