We all have different tastes and like different textures. I often alter recipes to suit my taste. I had made both recipes - yours, and Dan and Steves. In both recipes I omitted the ganache topping. I thought it was over-kill. In Dan and Steves recipe, I replaced the margerine with butter and cooked my brownies about 10 minutes longer then advised. I LOVED them. In your recipe I left out the nuts but used the coffee as it helps bring out the chocolatey goodness. :) I did liked it. Its hard to not like any brownie, however, I liked the texture of Dan and Steves better. I welcome anyone to try both.
