Katie: We had a snow day recently and Gray wanted chocolate chip cookies or brownies. We didn’t have any chocolate chips, but we did have some unsweetened baking chocolate left over from another recipe. I looked in a few cookbooks and found this recipe for fudgey brownies that sounded great! I much prefer gooey brownies to firm ones. We also had some leftover nuts, and I put nuts in half of the brownies. Since this batter was fairly thick, I just spread it in the pan with half no nuts and half with nuts. It worked pretty well, and so Gray got to have brownies with nuts, which I don’t ever make! I got to have my plain brownies too, so it was perfect! Enjoy!

Gray: These were great!  They made a really soft brownie and they had a very intense chocolate flavor.  I definitely recommend this recipe to all the brownie lovers out there!
