Just made these! Note: You MUST love, say, 85 percent dark chocolate in order to appreciate these. I baked mine in a 9" pie pan because my 9 in. pan was in use. I adjusted the time to 25 minutes. I also made a few major recipe changes: I omitted the salt (not necessary) and used only 1 stick of butter. In lieu of the remaining butter, I mixed 1/4 cup nonfat GREEK yogurt with 1/4 cup milk. I also omitted the walnuts. This had a peanut-butter-like consistency. I made my own chocolate buttercream (1 cup powdered sugar, 1/3 cup cocoa, 3 T melted butter, 2 t vanilla and milk to make a spreadable consistency). These need something sweet to offset the non-sweet brownies...if not my icing, at least some vanilla ice cream. I am a dark chocolate freak and these are good. I'd make them again, but only with the substitutions I listed and absolutely with the buttercream icing or ice cream. 2 cups of sugar is crazy for any recipe, but understandable since this recipe uses a full CUP of cocoa. Try this is you like bittersweet chocolate!
