    Ease up on the flour, I think. Check out Ina Garten's Recipe for Outrageous Brownies -- just google it. They are fab - dense.

      Second that! There's another recipe that is fantastic, and a little easier, I think. It's Nick Malgieri's Supernatural Brownies from The Splendid Table. Google The Splendid Table Recipe Box. You can't go wrong with either these or Ina's.

      I've always gotten raves on the brownies in Moosewood Original Cookbook. Classic brownies, delightful flavor. Sometimes I grate in orange zest or add a little espresso powder, but generally I like the classics, and I often get requests for these.

      I also do some that are like junior mint brownies and if you're interested I'd be glad to post -- basically a dense dark brownie, a layer of minty, and then a bittersweet chocolate drizzle on top. Very snazzy.

        Try these -- lots of real chocolate, not baking chocolate or cocoa.

          Try adding a touch of cinnamon or chili powder or both. I recently did this for a Mexican chocolate brownie. And like Foxy Fairy, I finished with a bittersweet chocolate drizzle across the top.
