When I make this for friends, I add nuts. When I make this for myself, I add raisins. I've tried M&M candies, toffee bits, and candy confetti -- it's very flexible.

  • Melt the chocolate and butter in the top of a double-boiler, stirring sporadically. When melted and combined, add the sugar and eggs, and stir until combined. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into the pan; stir until combined. Stir in the nuts (or raisins, or M&M candies, or toffee bits, etc.).

  • Spread the batter in the pan, smoothing it into the corners. Bake for about 35 minutes, but don't let it over-bake. Cool before cutting.

These brownies were great! My five-year old daughter and I made these for my husband for Father's Day and he loved them. My daughter had fun helping me make them and we all enjoyed eating them. This is a recipe I'll make for every Father's Day. Read More

These came out quite chewy. I like brownies when they're a bit more fudgey but these were a great success at home all the same. I suggest you don't bake more than indicated and also added a teaspoonful of vanilla extract. Read More

Good basic brownie and the plus for us is that they are not too sweet - because of the unsweetened chocolate. Just a little on the chewy side but otherwise very good. For those that complain of bitterness just use semisweet chocolate instead - very easy!!!! Read More
