    Saguaro's Note:

    Use high quality chocolate for these brownies. I like these made with Callebaut or Scharffen-Berger unsweetened. To make these with bittersweet chocolate instead, use 6 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, 7 tablespoons butter and 1 cup sugar. To make with semisweet chocolate, substitute 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, 5 tablespoons butter and 2/3 cup sugar.

      Lacking cocoa powder, I was seeking out recipes that called for unsweetened chocolate squares which I strangely had on hand. Amazingly, I had all of the other pantry ingredients as well and ended up making this recipe on a whim -- before anyone had uploaded a photo. This recipe is rich, decadent, oh-so-chocolately and actually super simple to make.

      I'm not a wildly talented baker but I nailed it on the first try. Brownie-wise, I prefer them slightly gooey so I only baked these for the minimum 30 minutes and they were perfect. Plus, they are so indulgent, I really couldn't eat more than one or two -- so portion control was naturally built in. Great stuff! Thanks Saguaro!

      PS -- If you served these while still slightly warm over vanilla ice cream, it would be beyond.

      Amazing brownie recipe. I will never use brownie mix again. The recipe is so simple to use. I always thought making brownies from scratch would be hard. These are so tasty and gooey. And it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. I used my kitchenaid mixer, but I kept it on stir mode. I didn't want too many air bubbles in the batter. Love this recipe!

      I made these brownies for a co-worker's birthday and they turned out perfect. I frosted the brownies with Coconut and Pecan Frosting (the traditional frosting for German Chocolate Cake). My co-worker loved the brownies because the flavors were a perfect balance. Additionally the frosting reminded him of what his mom made when he was a child, so they had an additional meaning for him! This recipe has become my go to, it replaced the one I since I was in middle school (back in the day when it was called jr high). This recipe deserves more than 5 stars!!!!
