    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I only have a couple of favorite recipes for brownies, this one happens to be high on my list, these are the most decadent, rich brownies! Yield is only estimated, depending on what size you cut the brownies. If I have any Kahlua, I always add in about 1/4 cup and omit the vanilla.

      I doubled this recipe and baked in a 9 X 13 dish for about 30 minutes. (I probably could've baked them for 5-10 minutes longer, but we like our brownies gooey). I used 1/2 regular cocoa powder and 1/2 special dark cocoa powder because we love the rich taste of dark chocolate. If you look at the posted picture, that is why the brownie looks so dark. I opted for using semi-sweet chocolate chips with no walnuts, so that my three boys would enjoy this wonderful treat. These brownies are fudgey, rich and extremely decadent!!! I could not wait for them to cool more than about 20 minutes, so ate a piece that was nice and warm. Yum! Thanks for another great recipe, Kit.
