Batter was really thick and yummy. I tasted it and decided to add more sugar (1/3 C brown sugar). It just didn't have the sugary sweetness I thought of a brownie. When all was said and done I was only half impressed with these. There was to much of a bitterness to it that I just couldn't get over. I would try it again with even more sugar. I think it would be great with some nice vanilla bean ice cream though!
