With just a little bit of tweaking this is my absolute favorite recipe to bake and to eat, hands down. 1.) Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks are a requisite for all brownies in my book, so I always add some to my homemade or boxed brownies. With the addition of chocolate pieces these brownies are Perfect. Hint: Only bake 20-25min. 2.) Skip the frosting from this recipe. I always top mine with chocolate ganache. Heat 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to a boil, remove from heat and mix in 8 oz. of chopped bittersweet chocolate OR semisweet chocolate chips. Pour over brownies.
Served hot, or chilled in the fridge, these are chocolate heaven. IF there are leftovers I cut and freeze them, and eat them straight out of the freezer. Or, if I'm in the mood for something warm and gooey (think molten lava cake) I zap the frozen bar in the micro for 10 seconds. I love these, and my husband does too. And, yes, we are chocoholics :)
PS. I have also used half applesauce/half butter and they are still fantastic.
