Recipe by Diana #2
A 'Chocolate Lovers' dream. :) Moist, chewy, quick to make. What more could we ask for? Toffee!!! I took the liberty of topping these gems off with a sprinkling of toffee bits. Whichever road you decide to take, the trip is very worthwhile. Another winner from the Company's Coming Cookbooks.

Well, I tried these twice. The 1st time I was dissatisfied. I pretty much followed the recipe (no toffee bits), only instead of chocolate chips I used chopped bakers chocolate squares. They turned out okay, but dry and a bit flavourless (probably because of the dryness). The 2nd time, I upped the butter and cocoa a touch, used chocolate chips and upped those a tiny bit too, and I baked for about 12 minutes instead of 15. The second batch came out infinitely superior, with a soft chewy texture and even a little bit of that crackle look on the top. In short, it seems I like my brownies a bit more moist and a bit less well done (but then, I'll just eat batter, so consider the source ;) Thanks for posting!
