These are pretty good all-purpose brownies. I love that the texture is moist and fudgy without being dense. For me, the chocolate flavor could be stronger; even with all that unsweetened chocolate I found these to be a little too sweet and a little weak in chocolate intensity.
The only brownies we eat at our house! I use my pampered chef large bar pan and make a double batch for cookouts. There are rarely any left over. I have also swirled in cheese cake batter and that works really well.
Yummy! GREAT chocolatey flavor and I only had 5 unsweetened chocolate squares. I also used only 1-1/2 cups sugar and for us it was plenty sweet. I checked it at 30 min and it seemed like it was still gooey/unset so I baked it for 7 min more and it turned out to be 3-4 min too long. I'll get it perfect next time at 33.5 minutes!! Also, instead of using the double broiler method to melt the chocolate and butter, I just microwaved it stirring/blending every 30 seconds until melted. It only takes about 1 min 30 seconds. Thanks for posting!!!
I found this recipe in their Cooks magizine awhile back and they are oh so yummy! These are the only brownies I make now. I lent out my 13x9 inch pan and ended up making a batch in an 11x8 inch pan and the results wern't as good. By the time the center was done the outside edges ended up to overdone. I recommend using the 13x9 everytime.
Very Classic!!! We loved it.
DH said these were the best brownies I've ever made! I love the pure flavor from the unsweetened chocolate! They were so moist and delicious and faster to prepare than it seems.
Delicious! Two batches made in under two hours and my entire family found them chocolatey, but not overly rich, chewy, but not overly dense. Highly recommend.
