Brownie Quest

The quest for the perfect brownie in my home has really just begun. I am still looking for new recipes to try so send them my way if you have a good one! I have tried three different homemade brownie recipes in the last two months and have gotten various responses to all of them from my family. My first attempt at homemade brownies was a huge failure. Needless to say, I do not have the recipe for them. They were very dry and too cakey for my taste. I think a really great brownie is a fudgy, kinda gooey mess and I tend to undercook them a bit. My secret for making a boxed brownie mix great has always been to cook them for 2 minutes less than the recipe calls for, usually resulting in a fudgy brownie. Well, I also add chocolate chips or frosting most of the time.

The second recipe I made was for Nick's Supernatural Brownies from I really liked them and so did my husband. My 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter did not care for them, but honestly, they don't eat brownies as much as my husband and me. I then tried the Baked Brownie recipe from, which had 3 more ounces of chocolate in it and one more egg than Nick's recipe. These were incredibly rich, I enjoyed the dark chocolate but could only eat a small brownie, not my normal average sized brownie (well, that's not always a bad thing). They were too rich for my husband and my son. My son's only comment about them was "they are too chocolaty, mom". Yesterday, I made Nick's Brownie recipe again, added semi-sweet chocolate chips and topped them with powdered sugar and sprinkles. They are even better on day two. My children are not sold yet on the brownies, so the quest continues to find the perfect brownie the whole family will enjoy. Until then, Nick's Supernatural Brownies are my favorite of the day!

Nick's Supernatural Brownies

  1. 16 Tbsp unsalted butter (I actually used salted)
  2. 8 oz bittersweet chocolate (I used semi-sweet)
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 Cup sugar
  5. 1 Cup packed brown sugar
  6. 2 tsp Vanilla
  7. 1/2 tsp salt
  8. 1 Cup flour
