Brownies. Homemade Chewy Goodness.


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.
