My Most Favorite Brownies

"These are my all-time favorite moist and candy-like brownies, adapted from the My Most Favorite Dessert Company cookbook by Doris Schechter. It took a few tries to get the brownies just the way I like them, but I believe they are absolutely perfect!"

Ready In:
12 brownies




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease an 11 x 7 inch baking pan.
  • In a bowl combine the flour and salt, stirring to blend.
  • In a double boiler over hot water, or in the microwave, combine the margarine and the coarsely chopped chocolate.
  • Heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and shiny.
  • Remove from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
  • Combine the sugar, eggs and cooled chocolate mixture.
  • Beat on medium speed until well mixed.
  • Blend in the vanilla.
  • Turn off the mixer and add the dry ingredients at one time, and blend on low speed until incorporated.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula (refrain from licking, I know it's difficult).
  • Stir in the dark and white chocolate chips.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and level the top.
  • You make now like what's leftover in the bowl.
  • Use your discretion how much you leave in the bowl.
  • Bake for 30 minutes for fudgy brownies, a cake tester will come out with some batter on it.
  • Remove the pan from the oven to a wire rack and let it cool slightly.
  • Keep covered with plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • These are also amazing frozen, just make sure you have a good dentist.

  1. This recipe was easy to make. I didnt change anything except i didnt add the white chocolate chips because i thought they would be too sweet. I havent tasted them yet because they just came out of the oven but they have my house smelling lovely. No more box brownies for us. Thanks for the recipe.
  2. If you like dense, fudgy, candy-like brownies this recipe is for you! I used 3 ounces of unsweetened chocolate (since I did not have semi-sweet) and 3 ounces of semi-sweet chips. Because I used the unsweeted chocolate I added 1/3 cup extra of sugar. I also baked this in a 9x9 pan. Don't forget to wait until they have cooled to cut them! I was so anxious to take a bite that I tried while they were still hot and quickly realized that I needed to wait:) I shared them with some colleagues at work and many people commented on their "fudgieness". I can't wait to try these with ice-cream on top!


<p><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;>Come and visit me on my blog:&nbsp; </span></strong></p> <p><a href=><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;></span></strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>October 2011: It's been 10 years since I came into Zaar one day at the recommendation of someone on another website. If you ask my husband (or my coworkers), I haven't logged out since! <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src=;15;0/st/20011021/e/I Joined Zaar%21/dt/6/k/f656/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />So what's happened in the ten years since I became addicted to Zaar? Well, I've been happily married, happily divorced, and happily married once again. (Wanna see wedding pictures? Click <a href=>here</a>.) <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Originally from the Bronx, I've been living in Israel since 1983. I'm married to a brilliant man with the most yummy British accent (this is the part where he rolls his eyes and says, Yeah, yeah, yeah). Let's call him Sushiman, even though he hates that name. <a href=>Chia</a> gave him that nickname when I was trying to create a dinner to show off my culinary talents. I posted here on Zaar with questions about the menu and since sushi was the main focus of the meal, he became Sushiman. That dinner was just the first of what I hope will become a lifetime of meals together. <br /><br />This is a picture of us taken in September 2005 in Kew Gardens in London. It my favorite picture of the two of us. <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></a> <br /><br />This comes in as a close second, taken March 2009: <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />I have 4 of the most gorgeous daughters in the known universe (tfu, tfu, tfu, that's me spitting three times to ward off the Evil Eye). Sushiman has 4 kids of his own, so together that makes us a family of ten, together with my dog and my step-dog (sadly, since I first wrote this my step-dog, Honey, crossed the Rainbow Bridge). We're the Brady Bunch on speed. Not all eight live with us, but everyone is in and out all of the time, so we're thinking about replacing our front door with one of those revolving thingies.</p> <p>If you need help figuring out the whole complicated mess, you can check out <a title=Miriyummy -- A Guide to the Perplexed href= target=_blank>Miriyummy, A Guide to the Perplexed</a>.</p> <p>Here are my four beauties -- from left to right: Adiya, Sara, Nomi and Tehila <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />On March 18, 2009, my oldest, Sara, got married to Ariel. The wedding was a clash of cultures and traditions, and we had a blast! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Over 500 people attended our little party... <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />... and Ariel was welcomed into our family in style! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />If you want to see the photo album from Sara and Ariel's wedding, just go <a href=;vhost=family&amp;action=refreshPhotos&amp;albumID=571020179&amp;security=JBDlvf>here</a>. <br /><br />We're just one big happy family, most of the time, really! <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Here on Recipezaar I am the host of the <a href=>Kosher &amp; Jewish Cooking forum</a>. Come on in, and let the Jewish Mothers of Zaar feed you senseless! <br /><br />I hope you enjoy my recipes. I have only posted recipes of food that I am willing to eat myself. Therefore, you won't find anything unkosher in my recipes. You won't find any stinky bleu cheese or goat's cheese either. You will find a lot of comfort food, I believe that comfort food is very important. <br /><br />Gay and Troy are always thanking us for making Recipezaar such a great place. I firmly believe that it's Gay and Troy themselves that deserve a multitude of thanks, from us! And I hope I live up to their expectations! <br /><br /><strong>Miscellaneous Stuff</strong> <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src=;10300;6/st/20050624/e/Since We Tied The Knot/dt/7/k/f6c1/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />&nbsp;<a href= target=_top><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Free website counter /></a> <br /><br />What time is it in Ra'anana? <br /> <object width=300 height=25 data=;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value=;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; /> <param name=src value=;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src= border=0 alt= /><br /></a></p>
