I have had MANY brownies and I have to say that these are BY FAR the best brownies I have ever had (and they aren't difficult to make)!

Easy to make. A few tips - After the chocolate and butter have melted, remove the pan from the heat and mix in the eggs, vanilla and sugar until combined. In step 4 when you add the flour, mix gently just until blended. It is even ok to have a few flour streaks. For brownies, once you add the flour you want to mix it as little as possible. The longer you mix the flour the more the gluten develops and you'll end up with a tough brownie, rather than a tender brownie. I recommend adding 1/2 teaspoon salt with the flour mixture. Salt brings out the chocolate flavor. As with all brownies, be careful not to overcook. Better slightly underdone than overcooked. Thanks for the recipe!
