Ok. This brownie was really good (the best my mother has ever had), but I cheated a lot. I used this recipe as a guide rather than exactly as written. Due to all the changes I had made to get the resulting brownie, I only gave this recipe 3 stars. I can imagine the brownie created by the original recipe would have a nice texture, but not be as deep in flavor.
I have a dairy allergy so I changed the recipe. The changes I made are as follows:
-1/2 cup of shortening vs 1/2 a cup of butter
-added 1/2 tsp of butter extract
-melted 1/2 ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate into the shortening
-mixed in about1/2 cup of milk chocolate chunks (these weren't dairy free, but a little milk won't kill me so I -decided to add them. If you have a severe milk allergy just substitute the chocolate chunks for some completely dairy free brownies. ;))
-I only baked them for 20 mins
The resulting brownie was absolutely the bees knees. It wasn't a thick brownie, but definitely had a good balance of chewiness and fudgeness, and had thin crisp top. I did not frost them as they were very rich and perfectly sweet on their own; however I could have frosted them and they would have been fine. As for the flavor they were very chocolatey and had a depth of flavor added by the milk chocolate chunks. They were very good!!!The best my family has ever had!!!! Happy baking! :)
