Why I Love This Recipe

Of course they're the best...they're from Cooks Illustrated.

Ingredients You'll Need

5 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter, cut in pieces
3 T cocoa powder
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour


Heat oven to 350. Grease 8 inch square pan.

To make easier to remove brownies, line with two crossing pieces of foil long enough to extend several inches over each side. Grease foil.

In double boiler melt chocolate and butter until smooth. Whisk in cocoa. Set aside to cool slightly.

Whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt.

Gradually whisk in chocolate mixture.

Stir in flour just until combined.

Pour into pan and bake 35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out with some sticky crumbs still on it.
