i made these this morning and they are FANTASTIC! they are just the perfect density. thick, fudgey,chewy, moist, the ideal combination of fudgey and cakey. great great recipe!!
Made these last night. This will be my go-to recipe now for brownies. I know someone commented about "thinning" the batter out to get it to "pour" into the pan- no need for this - just spoon it in as the directions tell you to. Also, concerning cocoa, I just used regular Hershey's cocoa. The other changes I made was putting in walnuts versus pecans, and only 1 cup of chocolate chips versus 2. I can see where you could do so many different add ins with this recipe! OH!! I cut them all up this morning and processed them with my seal-a-meal and now have a supply in my freezer (it's just my husband and I)! Now I will have these yummy treats handy any time!!
Boom! Been using this recipe for almost 10 years. I've baked them with both wheat and gluten free flours. Because I have celiac disease, I only make these with gf flour and bring them to events. No one knows these are gf. I also use Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder (difficult to find, I buy mine by the case on Amazon). Use the special dark cocoa...these brownies are *gorgeous*.
You can't go wrong with KAF recipes! Between the large amount of Dutch process cocoa, semi sweet chocolate chips, and 1 t espresso powder (in the original recipe), these brownies packed a heavy chocolate punch. The texture was perfect, not cakey. Next time I might adjust the chocolate factor, using milk chocolate chips or regular cocoa to dial them back a notch for my tastes. If you like deep dark chocolate flavor, this is the recipe for you! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I only changed one thing, replace half the flour with Bread Flour. Trust me...
Yes, this is a wonderful brownie recipe. Since my husband likes frosted brownies, I omit the chocolate chips and ice with hershey's perfect icing.(usually on the back of their cocoa container).
If you like fudgy brownies, this is the recipe for you.
Hands down 10 stars!!! This is SUCH a great receipe, I threw away my old receipe that was excellent!! These are a chocolate lovers dream come true!!! We made home made ice-cream & put some of the brownie chunks & Oreo cookies in it...my family finished off both the brownies & ice-cream in record time! Insanely good! Plan on some extra exercise time if you make these, cuz once you taste them, it's hard to stop!!! Thanks for a new favorite!!!!
Hands down the best brownie ever. Almost tastes like the dark chocolate box mix but definitely homemade. I dust a little sweetened cocoa on the bottom of the parchment paper and then pour in the batter. You can also mix in thin mint girl scout cookies and they are wonderful!
Wow, just the kind of brownie I'm looking for. Rich, thick with a shiny top crust! I don't like brownies that have a crumbly cake texture and if a brownie needs frosting, it's not a brownie, it's a cake! Used bittersweet chips this time and can't wait to experiment with milk choc., peanut butter and others. Thanks for posting.
After discovering this recipe this past summer, I ended up making it 5 times in about 3 weeks for different special occasions -- without a doubt the best brownie you'll ever taste! Great with bittersweet chocolate chips and walnuts as add-ins! Mahalo for posting!
