1 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
semisweet chocolate chips
packed brown sugar
Every Fall I start baking and testing recipes for Christmas gift giving. I wanted to try the recipe first before I made the layered jar to give. My kids had a ball usining a funnel and pouring the ingrediants in the jar. Although make sure you pack everything down really well. I mean this is cutting it close....I thought the brownies were heavenly and so did all my husbands workers. (I use them to taste test my baking) I have a slight problem with semisweet chips...I always use milk chocolate And I think milk choc. chips would have taken these up a level. I think it was great and it will be given as gifts this year! Mary
These were nice, but not great. The mixture was so dry that i had to put one more egg. When they were baked they were also to dry for my taste not moist, but had a good flavour.
I tried out the recipe first to see if I liked it enough to send as presents. They were way too sweet, way too dry when mixed, and they needed a little salt in the mix. I'm going to try it again with 1/2c sugar, 1/4t salt and 3 eggs. I mean, overall, it was good, but it needs work IMHO.
The best brownies I have ever had. I have tested them on all of my family and everyone already said they wanted the recipe. They were so moist and delicous. I did find that they were almost too thick to mix with the electric mixer so I always do the last bit of mixing by hand. But they definately were not dry!!!! I have doubled this recipe but again had to finish mixing by hand. But I didn't mind, the finished product is well worth it.
Too sweet and not moist enough for my taste.
This is a pretty good recipe, except: there is too much flour and too much sugar. I need to experiment more, but my basic feeling is that 1 - 1 & 1/4 cups of flour and 1/3 - 1/2 cup white sugar would be better. A pinch of salt is good too. I subbed a 4oz container of applesauce for 1/2 of the oil to cut back on fat. REALLY YUMMY WITH A LITTLE VANILLA ICE CREAM!
this was a first time for me, making brownies. They were sooooo good. My kids loved them, as did my hubbie and his co-workers.Also very good with sliced almonds instead of pecans. yum!
Better make a double batch because these did not last long in my house!!
