Oooey, Gooey, Rich and Chewy. If you are a fan of cake-like brownies, these are NOT for you. This makes a small pan of brownies that are moist and dense and need no icing. They form a crust that cracks and is a wonderful contrast to the fudgy texture of the brownie. Like all other basic brownie recipes, these are a great base for adding in chunks of chocolate, nuts, or whatever. As an adult, I like them with a 1/2 tsp of espresso powder added. For the brownie purist, the nuts are strictly optional. When I'm having one of those "must have chocolate" days, these are the perfect fix. After 1 brownie, I'm cured.
