I used this brownie recipe for a class I am in. I needed a brownie recipe that includes water, because my class experiment is replacing water with a different ingredient (a nutraceutical) to add healthy benefits to the food. THis recipe was EXCELLENT for what i needed it for. They came out moist and cakey (I took them out 5-10 min early each time). I have made them at least once or twice each week for this class and they are very consistent. However, they are VERY dark chocolate. Anyone in my class that likes dark chocolate LOVED this recipe. If you are a more milk chocolate person, use semi-sweet chocolate instead and I think you'll enjoy the recipe more. Its deffinitely for Dark chocolate lovers.

These were absolutely delicious!! I had no walnuts, so I omitted those, and I only baked for 20 minutes. The brownies are somewhat dense, very chocolatey and not too sweet. Just how I like them! Thanks!!!

I had no idea chocolate could taste this awful! I'm not sure where this recipe goes wrong, but both the flavor and texture are very bad.

I am not sure if I did something wrong, but they turned out bitter and dry.

These brownies came out horrible. They were very cakey and rubbery. The chocolate gave it a dense taste but the consistency was not good.

These brownies really did seem to melt in your mouth which i thought was a nice difference. But I thought they were too cakey instead of the rich and chewy texture I prefer. I would also leave out the salt beacause it tasted pretty salty.
