I started making this recipe shortly after it was published in Diane Mott Davidson's book in 2005. I have made it numerous times for soccer teams and office groups. It is fabulous and is now the only chocolate brownie recipe I make. Do NOT scrimp on ingredients. Use butter, not margarine. Use best quality chocolate. It really makes a difference.
