I finally made a recipe from my Cooks Illustrated magazine. And of course it was brownies! They were trying to achieve the chewiness of the box mixes (Ghiradelli), which is a 28%/72% saturated to unsaturated fat ratio. Most homemade recipes are more like 64%/36% saturated to unsaturated fat. I meant to do a side by side but the box mix got made a few weeks ago (ooops!).
Two kinds of chocolate into the mix…
And then stirring and then baking…Yes, I even did the foil exactly like they said.
Done! I ate a good quarter of the pan. Alone, and with ice cream in a sundae form. I think they actually got better the next day. The larger chocolate pieces were nice in the bars. Very chewy. Though I will say my mom’s box ones are equally as good. I don’t know, I’m just a sucker for brownies!
