"My favorite brownie recipe by far! Has a very sophisticated taste; not your kids brownie, an adult brownie! You definitely want to let the brownies cool completely, maybe even pop them into the fridge before cutting. After that they are a very fudgy, solid, brownie. If you don't let them cool and set they will fall apart. But the taste is delicious and unmatched!"

"Wow, these were REALLY fudgy...bordering on mushy. Even though the toothpick came out clean, the finished product seemed under baked. I kept the crust around the edges and threw the rest away."
