These really are incredible. Dense and chewy, with a bit of crunch. As per suggestions from other users I reduced sugar to 2 1/2 cups (1 1/4 white, 1 1/4 brown). At 2 1/2 cups our sweet teeth were plenty satisfied. Other than that I did everything as per Brooke's original. Although the directions didn't say one way or the other, I mixed all of this by hand to ensure the dense and chewy consitency was not compromised. I find today's mega-watt hand mixers can reek havoc on baked goods like cookies and brownies (you end up with drier, more cakey outcomes). I baked them for 37 minutes and even though the toothpick did not come out clean I didn't want to risk over baking so I pulled them out and let them cool in the pan. They were perfect, two minutes any more would have been too much. For what it's worth I live at sea level and cook in a gas oven. Thanks Brooke, this will be the brownie recipe used in my home.
