Recipe: Chewy Fudgy Brownies
This recipe for chewy fudgy brownies is my favorite. We like fudgy brownies… we simply don’t care for cake-like brownies… and if you’re going to eat the calories… you might as well eat what you like.
I used unsweetened chocolate... not powder... the chocolate comes in 1 oz. squares in a box of 8. You can find it in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
I line my pan with foil for easy removal (see my previous Tip of the Day about using foil to line your pan)... I use Reynolds Wrap Non-stick foil... it's the best. I still lightly sprayed the foil with cooking oil to be sure they would come out easy.
The brownies tend to be very wet when first baked… they are actually better the next day… be sure to cool them completely before lifting them out of the pan and cutting them.
I cut mine and put them on a serving plate… then covered them with plastic wrap. They are absolutely the best brownies the second day.
These are the best brownies!!
