Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
This is my go to recipe for brownies. here's some tips to make sure yours come out perfect. use melted chocolate instead of cocoa, i use about 3/4 c melted chips. (this will make sure you get a fudgy instead of cakey brownie. HOWEVER, doing this can result in a brownie that is too gooey, yes there is such a thing. if this happens to you, add a touch more flour next time around until you get the right feel of the necessary amount in ratio to the chocolate. melted chocolate is more on the liquid side in the ingredients list, therefore causing your batch to be less structured. to combat this, add more structure=flour, not too much or you'll have the evil cake texture) the only mixing tool you need is a good ol' wooden spoon or a spatula if its stiff enough. (reduces chance of over mixing, which can cause brownies to be more 'cakey' as well). use cold eggs and definitely do not pre-beat them (you know the flaky layer you get from box brownies? its all in the eggs...whites to be specific. be careful to not over beat eggs, as this breaks down the structure of the whites, which account for that flaky layer. again, don't use room temp eggs. make sure they're cold) .
