Ghirardelli Award Winning Brownies

"This recipe came from the can of Ghirardelli Brand Sweet Ground chocolate and Cocoa (found with the baking supplies). They were so great that I made them twice in one day! I omitted the walnuts but added the chocolate chips."

    ever since I found this recipe on the Ghirardelli can, it's the only brownies I make. I always omit the nuts, but that's personal preference. I tend to double the chocolate chips, which is also personal preference :) they tend to dry out after a day, so make sure everyone eats them up fast!

    Got this off of the can, and they were great! I didn't add any nuts and I added probably 1/4-1/2 cup extra chocolate chips. I made two pans and one pan I did half white chocolate chips-yummy! A friend of mine asked for the recipe and I told her they dry out quickly and she said that I should use half butter (for flavor) and half oil (for moisture). I'm gonna try that next time.

    So good! I didn't have any chocolate chips, but it was great anyway. I also didn't have an 8 or 9 inch pan, so I just used a pie pan and it worked fine, though a little tough on the edges. I felt the walnuts really added to the texture and flavor. I put some home-made ice cream and chocolate syrup on top and thought I was in paradise!!

    These came out delicious. I would have given 5 stars except the recipe said it makes 16-24. I doubled the recipe expecting around 30 brownies and only ended up with 24 brownies cut into small thin squares from a 9” pan

    I made these yesterday and they were awesome. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding a little extra salt. I normally buy the Ghiradelli Brownie Mix but these were better.
