I begged a friend of mine that made these for his recipe. Oh my, I couldn't get enough of them. These are very moist and dense and they sort of remind me of fudge. Yum!

I've been on a mission to find the perfect fudgie brownie and have so far been unsuccessful. Meanwhile, my DH is probably sick of all the poor results. This recipe really delivered though. Easy to mix up, easy to bake, cool and in the fridge. I taste-tested this recipe at about 12am with a glass of cold milk, and it really hit the spot, nice chocolate taste, fudgie texture...will make again. Thanks MT!
WOW! These are wonderful! So rich and fudgy that I doubt they'll be around long enough to store in the airtight container! ;) I love the pecans in them, and used a little more then the recipe stated, but that's just a personal choice. Thank you for sharing your recipe MT, I know they'll definitely get made again! :)
