I make these when I'm baking for people who love dense, gooey, super-fudgy brownies. The chocolate flavor and sweetness are perfectly balanced, and overall this is one of my favorite recipes.
I followed your directions exactly and found these to be perfectly fudgy and delicious. Thanks!
Definitely an awesome recipe - in the bakery's first cookbook: "Baked: New Frontiers in Baking." I am SO glad I tried it and even MORE glad I gave 98% of the brownies away to my buddies (or we would've eaten them all)! I used Ghirardelli 60% chocolate to melt, and regular Hershey's cocoa for the powder (because that's what I had). I followed the rest of the instructions as posted. Even at high altitude (Colorado Springs), these were great. This will be in my top brownie recipes from now on (Ina's Outrageous Oreo Brownies are pretty freakin' good too!). Thanks for sharing this one. Everyone who likes brownies (my husband thinks they're "eh" - he's crazy.) should try them. :)
This recipe is a must-try. Even if it's just so you brag and say "I've tried the BAKED Brownie recipe". So far I have made it with both dark chocolate as called for in the recipe and with milk chocolate because it's what I had on hand. Both were wonderful. Dense and chewy chocolate bliss.
