I gave this recipe 0 stars because I think it is posted incorrectly. When I read this I thought WOW that is alot of chocolate so I printed it, then pulled it up again on the site to make sure I was reading it right. 12 ounces of unsweetened chocolate and 6 T of cocoa. HMMMMM. Well I had my doubts but I proceeded and it turned out like bitter dirt. It was a very expensive mistake. I am pretty sure it is supposed to be 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate. I may try it again with only 2 and come back with a different review but if you make this as is, it is not good. I threw it directly into the trash. Just wish I could get a refund. 8 eggs and all of that chocolate was not cheap.
OK, I went back and tried this recipe again using only 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate and I substituted margarine in place of butter just in case it turned out bad again. This time it was very different. It is a very good recipe. I really enjoyed these brownies. well as much as you can enjoy something with no sugar or flour. It is definately a keeper. I HIGHLY recommend using only 2 ounces of the unsweetened chocolate though. Someone really should correct the amount of chocolate. It is very expensive to make and throw away as it it listed.
I made this today and overall, I thought it turned out pretty good! It was slightly bitter tasting...and I'm not a good enough baker to know what could be added to it to offset that??? I will research that and remake it another day!
I followed this recipe to a "T" and they turned out nothing like the photo. :/ They were flat and greasy. They tasted okay, but I'm wondering if perhaps the next time I make them I should add some baking powder. They just didn't rise at all. Once I remake them, I will rereview them.
