"If you like your brownies chewy in the middle and crisp on the outside edges, then this recipe is for you!"

1 1/2 cups
light corn syrup
I cut the salt back to a half teaspoon and I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts. I made no other changes or substitutions. I baked this in my Perfect Brownie Pan, baked at 350* this was done in 33 minutes. Though these brownies turned out exactly as the submitter stated (PERFECTLY chewy and just chocolate-y enough), I missed the flavor that butter gives to brownies. I will make thes again and use butter next time in place of the oil.
These were just good enough. I prepared them in mini muffin pans with the intention of prettying them up with a rosette of vanilla buttercream frosting, festive Christmas sprinkles and a Hershey's mint truffle kiss. Good thing. On their own the brownies are fairly nondescript -more cake-like than chewy (reduce or eliminate the baking powder next time) and not deeply chocolate enough (next time substitute a couple of tablespoons of cocoa to replace same amount of flour and maybe add a teaspoon or two of espresso powder or instant coffee granules to intensify the chocolate flavor). This in spite of the fact I'm sure these were improved merely because I used (melted) butter instead of the vegetable oil. The frosting and mint truffle kiss gave the impression then, that these brownies were much better than they really were.
Thank you for the ratings, I am honored you chose my recipe to make. I did make a typo it should be 1/2 teaspoon not 11/2 t. Sorry ..
I took note of the first reviewers comment on the salt. I dropped the salt to 1 teaspoon and I found it to be plenty - could probably drop it to 3/4 tsp w/ good results too. Instead of incorporating the walnuts into the batter I sprinkled them on top. When you mix the nuts into the batter they get steamed. By adding the nuts on top of the batter they will get toasted and give a better texture.
These are the best brownies I have ever had, including fancy ones from coffee shops. Years from now, my children will not know to properly give you credit for this recipe. It will probably be the thing that they brag about me for, and the reason their schools make sure I always know about the bake sale. So, I thank you now. I also curse you, because I have diabetes and have had to exercise an unreasonable amount of willpower since making them. Don't worry, I am sharing!(I also skipped the glaze. I don't even want to KNOW how they taste with that.) Again, from the bottom of my vial of insulin, I thank you. Its not like I wouldn't have eaten a brownie, but it is nice when it is a brownie WORTH eating.
I made these for my boys for an after school snack. I just used a pinch of salt and I used agave nectar instead of the corn syrup (b/c that's what I had on hand). The kids called them "BEAST!"......that's good! :) Thanks for the recipe!!
These were AWESOME! I cut recipe in half, used 1/2 c. of cocoa, cut salt to 1/2 teaspoon and added a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Baked for only 25 minutes in a 8x8 glass pan and they turned out perfectly - exactly as promised - slightly crisp edges and chewy middles. I did not bother to frost; they smelled so good, I had to sample after they cooled slightly. HEAVENLY!
AWESOME! officially my permanent brownie recipe. Very chewy/gooey. Well done, Tom!
