Posted in response to a request and found in an online search, I have not made this so times are estimates. EDITED TO ADD: Reviewers suggest baking the brownies for a shorter time. Changing baking time from "40-45 mins" to "30-35 mins"... however, I'd suggest checking at 25 mins and then again at 30 mins if you think they need to be baked longer.

For a denser brownie omit the egg and melt the chocolate chips prior to their incorporation. This makes a delish cakey brownie as written tho!

These were more cake-like than I would have liked. I did put in the chocolate chips and the tastes was very good.

These were very good. I cooked them for 33 minutes and they were a bit crumbly but not dry at all. I also used white chocolate chips. Thanks!
