if your looking for an everyday run-of-the-mill cake-style brownie then pass this by, this is a a moist chewy extreme chocolate bakery-style brownie that takes little time to make and tastes even better the next day, it's everything a good brownie should be! --- I have even made these using half brown sugar and half white sugar, the amount of sugar listed will give you a sweet brownie you may reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup or more if desired or if you have a sweet tooth use amount stated --- add in a couple of tablespoons of coffee-flavored liqueur in place of the vanilla if desired -- according to a reviewer oil may be used in place of the butter successfully --- these brownies freeze very well, they are so simple to make just mix everything by hand, they bake out so rich and sinful! --- see Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing

nothing short of amazing. I have not made one Kittencal recipe that hasn't been great. Have you written a book yet? If so I want to buy it, I'm sure all your classics will be in there!
Wow, I can't believe this great brownie!! I thought I had the perfect brownie but I do believe this is at the top of the list. I do not like cake - like brownies but those soft and chewy and this fits the bill. I omitted 1 cut of chocolate chips at the end and added 1 cut walnuts. Very moist and rich! The office ate them before 10:00 a.m. You will think they are not done when you put a toothpick in them for it will come out wet, but they are done and when cool set up perfect. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
These were great! I didn't have enough chocolate chips, so I halved the recipe, used an 8x8 baking pan, and reduced the bake time to 30 minutes. I always thought you had to use cocoa powder for brownies, which I never have on hand, so it was nice to know you can use chocolate chips instead. I reduced the sugar like the recipe stated and the brownies were just sweet enough.
