Perfect Brownies

Martha Stewart's brownies that have brown sugar in them!

Top Review by Pumpkin Escobar

These are extremely good. The chocolate alone might set you back $8-10 if you get Ghirardelli chocolate (which I used). But the result is a luxurious brownie, for special occasions or when you want to impress somebody. Using Ghirardelli chocolate gave it a very complex chocolate flavor. It's something anyone who's a fan of food can appreciate.
