One Bowl Brownies

"This is the only "regular brownie" recipe I use anymore. It is from the Baker's chocolate box. My favorite is to frost these with almond-flavored buttercream icing tinted pale pink! Yum! Chocolate and cherries!"

    I've made this many times. Very delicious & gooey. The type of chocolate makes all the difference. I used Sharffenberger. I melt the butter in a pot, then turn off the stove and put in the chocolate. The butter melts the chocolate pretty quickly. Problem is that they crumble & fall apart too easily. It's necessary to put parchment paper on the bottom of the pan just to pull them out. I use a 13x9-inch glass baking pan and it takes 45 minutes to cook it. I tested my oven with a special thermometer & it's exactly the right temperature.

    This is a great recipe to have because it's so easy and the ingredients are probably in your pantry. I like it best with pecans although I have tried walnuts and almonds on occasion. I do find the 2 cups of sugar to be a bit much and have experimented with 1 1/2 cups of sugar with good results. Better to undercook than overcook this one!

    Very good. I melted the chocolate and butter together to make mixing easier. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    These are the brownies I make every time. I should have reviewed them a long time ago! We eat gluten free, so I just sub gf all purpose flour plus a little xanthan gum for the flour. Perfect, easy, and SUPER YUMMY!! :)

    Absolutely scrumptious, besides being quick and simple. I almost always double the recipe and bake it in a sheet pan since it seems I am usually making it for big family dinners, church gatherings, or parties that my teenagers are throwing. .
