The Original Guenther House Chewy Brownies

"My boyfriends mother made these over the weekend and they are the best I have ever had. I pride myself on being a "sweets snob" so if I say they are the best then either they are, or they are darn close to it! This recipe came out of a magazine but all that it says on the bottom is July/August 2006. Enjoy!"

  1. While these brownies tasted good, they were a little too chewy for us. I had a hard time determining if the brownies were even done at the recommended 25 minutes--an inserted toothpick came out pretty messy looking. I baked a bit longer and the end product was a chewy brownie. Good...not exceptional. Guess we're more of a cake-like brownie family, so that's our problem, not the fault of this recipe.


I am currently living in Athens, GA with my boyfriend, our three dogs, and house rabbit. I have been cooking less since moving here because there are lots of great local restaurants to find cheap eats at. I am very domesticated and I love being in the kitchen. I rarely ask someone else to cook in my house because it is therapeutic for me. I love butterscotchgirl for buying me a premium account! She rocks, woot! I am absolutely honored to be selected as "Chef of the Day". I hope you guys enjoyed digging through some of my favorite cookbooks :)
