Ok, if you're like me, you loved brownies as a child, and have NEVER duplicated that blissful experience as an adult.
Intellectually, I know that this recipe is better than those bakesale brownies from my childhood. But emotionally, at this very moment, I am about 7 again, and my eyes are welling up with happy tears.
Here's the recipe, I added some flour and skipped the nuts. Suggest you make two batches!

I love brownies. I've kind of settled into the recipe on the back of the Ghiradelli cocoa canister.. They're always big hits. One thing that always amazes me--folks seem so impressed and amazed by from scratch brownies. But they're so dang simple to make! I try to explain that; they don't seem to believe me.
One of my favourites to make when I need dessert in a hurry is brownies. Add good ice-cream and chocolate sauce and it's a decadent dessert. Sprinkle M&ms on top and it's just fun.
Alice Medrich is coming out with a updated version of her book on cookies. It will be called Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies.
I found this blog with the recipes from the first book, which is pretty expensive if you try to buy it online. Scroll down.
skipped the nuts, used 1/2 cup each brown and white sugar and added a teaspoon of espresso powder. baked in a madeline tin (made 24) @ 325-degrees for 10 minutes.
froze them, then ate straight from the freezer. fabulous! thanks for the info.
