Densities (Richest Chocolate Squares)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 40 mins

The richest chocolate square ever eaten. Your kids will rate this 11 out of 10. The secret to a good brownie is slight under baking. Insert a skewer in the cake at the edge of the pan. It should come out clean, but the center should still be slightly moist; the brownies will continue to cook while cooling.

Ingredients Nutrition

  6. Beat the dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
  7. Stir in the cooled melted chocolate and vanilla.
  8. Pour the batter into a greased 13 x 9-inch pan.
  9. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the side comes out clean.
  10. (The center should still be slightly moist.).
  11. Cool in the pan and cut into bars.
  12. Makes about 4 dozen 2 x 1-inch bars.

Very good although a bit sweet for me. They were a bit more cake like than the brownies I prefer. But overall a very good brownie. Thanks.

Very tasty! Nice chocolate combo. Do watch the baking time carefully like Rita said.

When making the batter was very light, fluffy and so rich I just knew these would be great. The only mistake is the 40 minutes baking. They did dry out a bit! Rereading your intro you STATE "The secret to a good brownie is slight under baking" This should have been in the directions. I do wish I could go back and shorten my baking time. I say go ahead and make these just bake for 30 minutes.
