I've made this many times. Very delicious & gooey. The type of chocolate makes all the difference. I used Sharffenberger. I melt the butter in a pot, then turn off the stove and put in the chocolate. The butter melts the chocolate pretty quickly. Problem is that they crumble & fall apart too easily. It's necessary to put parchment paper on the bottom of the pan just to pull them out. I use a 13x9-inch glass baking pan and it takes 45 minutes to cook it. I tested my oven with a special thermometer & it's exactly the right temperature.
This is a great recipe to have because it's so easy and the ingredients are probably in your pantry. I like it best with pecans although I have tried walnuts and almonds on occasion. I do find the 2 cups of sugar to be a bit much and have experimented with 1 1/2 cups of sugar with good results. Better to undercook than overcook this one!
Very good. I melted the chocolate and butter together to make mixing easier. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
These are the brownies I make every time. I should have reviewed them a long time ago! We eat gluten free, so I just sub gf all purpose flour plus a little xanthan gum for the flour. Perfect, easy, and SUPER YUMMY!! :)
Absolutely scrumptious, besides being quick and simple. I almost always double the recipe and bake it in a sheet pan since it seems I am usually making it for big family dinners, church gatherings, or parties that my teenagers are throwing. .
This is the best brownie recipe I've ever found and it is so easy to make.
This is a recipe I use alot...it"s great. I am glad you posted it so I too can throw my old box out (lol).Thanks!
We also like this recipe from the Baker's chocolate box. I did dust them with powdered sugar and drizzled the same chocolate over the top. A little cinnamon added to the brownies also sounds good. Thanks for posting the recipe Susan. Lauralee O-O-O-P-S Update 8/9/08 I tried to use Splenda to make these brownies......... it didn't work!!! ;<)
I make these all the time! I have a little scrap of a box that I keep in my recipe box. They're MARVELOUS with a bag of white chocolate chips mixed in.
