The perfect brownie recipe. Chewy not cakey.

So you are looking for the perfect brownie, huh? You want one that just makes you melt when you take that first bite of warm chewy chocolately goodness? Well, here's a recipe for you to try.

Brownies

* Do not overbake!

You will need:

3 ounces- unsweetened chocolate

6 Tbsp- butter or margarine ( butter works best in my opinion)

1 1/2 C. Sugar

3- eggs

1/4 tsp.- salt

3/4 C.- flour

3/4 C.- Chopped nuts ( optional)

1 1/2 tsp.- Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch square cake pan. Melt chocolate and butter in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour into baking pan. Bake about 40 minutes until dry on the top and almost firm to the touch. Let cool in the pan.

If you would like, you can frost these brownies before removing from the pan.

Chocolate Icing

1 C.- sugar

1/4 C.- milk

1/4 C.- butter

1 square- baking chocolate, cut up

Place ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir well and bring to a rapid boil. Boil about 2 minutes or until you reach "soft ball" on a candy thermometer. Add 1 tsp. Vanilla extract. Let cool and beat with a spoon. Icing should be thin. Pour and spread over brownies. It takes several hours for the icing to set.

Enjoy!

THIS RECIPE IS HORRENDOUS. IT IS A SHAM. A COMPLETE SHAM. THE RESULT WAS AN UNATTRATIVE UNAPPETIZING MESS. IT WAS A CAKE NOT A BROWNIE AND A SUB PAR CAKE AT THAT. REMOVE THIS MISLEADING RECIPE. SHAME ON YOU FOR BLATANT FALSE ADVERTISING. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. BLECH.

Too bad that the recipe didn't work out for Waverly. I baked a batch yesterday and I didn't bother with the icing. They were mmm-mmm-moist and chewy. Even a day later, they were still moist. The only thing I would change next time is to cut down the sugar to 1 1/4 cup. I'm saving this recipe in my book! Thanks!

I am about to use this recipe, but the recipe it really unspecific! Is it dark chocolate? Do you use icing sugar for the icing? And how much chocolate do you use for the icing, because I doubt 1 square will do? Maybe I'm just a newbie, but it seems a bit confusing for me!

I'm from South Africa and I am doing research on brownies, so thanks for this recipe. What I have learned so far is that you should make them with unsweetened chocolate and not cocoa powder, so at least I am making progress.

This recipe is very good , i love recipeies that you just chuck everything into one pot/bowl which is this is. Sweet tooth the brownies work with most chocolates you can use milk, dark, mayby white (white isn't my favourite) but dark is the best to use, and you only have to put in just over 1 cup of sugar( if you want the brownies to taste even better you can use brown sugar but only 3/4 cup)hope that helps Sweet tooth. Anyway best brownies ive made in a long time :)
