"When I make this for friends, I add nuts. When I make this for myself, I add raisins. I've tried M&M candies, toffee bits, and candy confetti -- it's very flexible."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double-boiler, stirring sporadically. When melted and combined, add the sugar and eggs, and stir until combined. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into the pan; stir until combined. Stir in the nuts (or raisins, or M&M candies, or toffee bits, etc.).
  3. Spread the batter in the pan, smoothing it into the corners. Bake for about 35 minutes, but don't let it over-bake. Cool before cutting.

Good but just a little dry.

These brownies were great! My five-year old daughter and I made these for my husband for Father's Day and he loved them. My daughter had fun helping me make them and we all enjoyed eating them...

The first time i made this recipe it was WONDERFUL!!!!!! BUT everytime i make it now it's bitter and dry and never comes out well.....

I've made this several times and it turns out great. Watch cooking time-don't overcook. This has become "MY" brownie recipe.

These came out quite chewy. I like brownies when they're a bit more fudgey but these were a great success at home all the same. I suggest you don't bake more than indicated and also added a tea...

Good basic brownie and the plus for us is that they are not too sweet - because of the unsweetened chocolate. Just a little on the chewy side, but otherwise very good. For those that complain ...

I have made these two times. Very bitter. Not good, I brought them to work...and home again!
