These brownies are too good to take to a picnic! My sweet-tooth DH would never allow it! I made a half recipe using a makeshift dbl boiler to melt the butter/choc mix & otherwise made as written. They cut like a brownie, look like an extra-rich choc cake & taste like moist & chewy choc heaven! Frosting, powd sugar or whipped cream would be definite overkill, but I'm thinking frozen yoghurt would be TDF. Thx for sharing this spec sweet treat w/us. :-)
These were soooo good! I love bittersweet chocolate! The smell from the oven was more than I could take. I cut into these too quickly after they came out of the oven, and they crumbled, but the flavor was divine. After I let them COOL PROPERLY, they were wonderful (no more crumbling)! The crumb was fine, without being cake-like; moist without being 'soggy'; and the cinnamon undertone was sublime. Thanks, Sharon!
