This is chocolate heaven.. I had a craving this morning, and this was just what i needed. I did have to substitute cocoa+oil for the unsweetened chocolate, because i didn't have any here, but that worked fine. I mixed them by hand, and there was only one bowl to clean! However.. I did find the brownies to be a little too solid/cold directly out of the fridge, but i think our fridge is set too cold.. I just let them sit out a bit before I serve them.. if I can wait that long! Nothing better than a glass of milk and one (or five..) of these!
Thank you Merrie and Aunt Susan! These are incredibly fudgy. This will now be the brownie recipe I use! I didn't add the extra sugar and they were perfect as is. They are rich and gooey, so I totally understand the need to keep them in the fridge, but I bet warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be quite nice! I may just try that next time... Thanks for sharing this wonderful memory of your aunt!
I love these brownies. I first tried these at Merrie's house and then once she shared the recipe on Zaar, I tried making them myself,and they have now become my favorite fudgey brownie. They are super rich and buttery and ohh so yummy. I do add the exta sugar mentioned in the description. They are very addictive. NOTE: After baking, you will notice that they are very jiggly - if you stick a toothpick in, it will be coated with a thick, fudgey goo. Resist the temptation to bake them longer!! The top should look slightly crisp, but if you cut into them, they will appear way,way underdone-but this is normal. After chilling overnight, they will be firm,and ultra fudgey. I cut them into squares before chilling, leaving them in the pan, and then before serving I let them set out at room temp for about 10 minutes to soften up.
