I used this recipe to bake brownies for my husband to take to work. THANK YOU. These were a huge hit. I believe I heard "heavenly" and "best brownies ever" used to describe them. They are very sweet (too sweet for me, but I don't have much of a sweet tooth), but his coworkers loved them.
I made a few changes. First, I only used 1 12-oz. package of chocolate chips, half with the vanilla and half later, just before baking, since I planned to dip these in chocolate and was worried about them being too sweet. (That didn't work out so well ... dipped brownies take a lot of melted chocolate! But my husband's coworkers liked both the dipped and undipped brownies.) I added a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder along with the first half of the chocolate chips. I used 1/8 cup water and 18 cup whole milk in lieu of the 1/4 cup water for a slightly creamier texture. And I left out the nuts because I don't like nuts and I was worried about allergies.
I cut my brownies into approx. 1.5" cubes, and this batch made 48 cubes of that size. One warning: these brownies rose a lot while baking. I baked these in a 9x13 pan that was about 1.5-2" deep, and the brownies rose up to (and slightly above in some places) the rim of the pan.
