I tried looking for the "perfect" brownie recipe, but they all were not to my expectations, they either had too much or too little of something. I think I found a good balance with the ingredients which is sure to deliver you the most rich "can't stop eating them" brownies. Please feel free to make suggestions and offer advice for alterations.

This is a very interesting yet delicious brownie recipe. It calls for only 1/4 cup melted butter so the batter is very thick, and the finished brownies (I baked mine in an 8-inch pan for 20 minutes) have a nice crackly top, but the crackle is very thick and not shiny, unlike typical brownies. However, they are absolutely delicious, chewy and fudgy, and remind me of the best boxed brownies (which was always my goal - to make homemade brownies that are as chewy and tasty as box mix brownies). However, I just wanted to double check - is the 1/4 cup of melted butter correct, or is it supposed to be 1/3 or 1/2 cup? Thanks for posting this recipe!

Delicious brownies! Chewy, fudgy brownie goodness. They are incredibly simple to make. I went ahead and baked them in a 9x13 pan. I think I would like them a little thicker next time so I'll go the 8x8 route. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
