“Minimal ingredients and procedures in this recipe won me over but only secondarily to the super chocolate taste and chewy texture.”

Original recipe yields 12 brownies



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x11 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour, salt and cocoa powder just until moistened. Stir in the walnuts, if using. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is dry and the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool before cutting into squares.

Very nice, quick brownies. I didn't have a 9x11 pan, so I used a 9x9 pan, but I had to cook them a little longer which caused them to think about burning on the bottom. So try and use a 9x11. And I put semi-sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in them. The butterscotch were lousy (they were too sweet), but the semi-sweet chips were nice. I imagine peanut butter chips would be nice in this. You don't need icing with this brownie, because it's just perfect on it's own. Not too sweet and very chocolatey. Huzzah! I'll make this one again.

I made these brownies one Saturday afternoon when I had a sudden urge for brownies. Having no "mixes" on hand, I came here and found this recipe. It was easy to make and turned out wonderful! I ended making them in a 9x13 pan because I don't have a 9x11 and I thought a 9x9 would be too thick. They turned out fairly thin, but still moist, chewy and very chocolaty! My husband loved them, too, and he's a hard critic when it comes to desserts. These actually remind me of a mix between fudge and a brownie, both so good!! I will be making these again. Thanks for the great recipe.



Okay, okay..thats it..I have reached chocolate heaven..pray for me...don't change a thing with this recipe except your waistline.
