I made these for Valentine's Day, and served with ice cream and hot fudge sauce. So chewy and chocolatey. My favorite Valentine's dessert! I sprinkled some sea salt on top, right before they were done baking..delicious!
Holy lord of all things chocolately! DH and I are big fans of the boxed brownies but I'm perpetually on the lookout for a homemade version since they'll no doubt be cheaper, more accessible and not filled with preservatives. This is the absolute closest we've ever gotten! DH had a snack craving at 8:30pm and I suggested whipping up this recipe...my oven takes just over 4 minutes to heat to the temp specified and I was done mixing before it dinged! Sinful right out of the pan still warm and even better the next day! I'm not a brownie crust fan, but these are divine. Thanks so much for posting your DH's fantastic recipe!
After hearing so much about these brownies, I decided to make them on 11/10/09. I followed the recipe to the letter, and baked them for 30 minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven. We all thought that they were a bit on the dry side. The taste was just o.k. I think that I'll just keep looking for a brownie that's a bit more moist. But thanks for taking the time to post.
