I have become a frequent visitor to  There are so many different types of lovely and amazing food on the website, I just start drooling every time I go there!  This was where I found the recipe for bittersweet chocolate brownies.

To start at the beginning, I received a couple of bars of Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate in a chocolate haul I got for Valentine’s Day from my husband.  I searched through my cookbooks and online to find a recipe using bittersweet chocolate, but most used semisweet.  I began to crave brownies over the past couple of days and just today came across the recipe for bittersweet chocolate brownies (from Slow Like Honey), via

The baker, Amanda, at Slow Like Honey, claimed that these brownies were the best ever, and when I read that, I knew this was the recipe I would use my bittersweet chocolate for.  They looked too tempting to pass by.

I did do a couple of things differently from the posted recipe, which is originally from Alice Medrich’s book Pure Dessert.  I used a double boiler to melt the chocolate and butter, instead of sitting the bowl of chocolate and butter in simmering water and I used parchment paper to line the pan instead of aluminum foil.  I think that my brownies are just a touch under-baked, although I went about 2-3 minutes over the recommended baking time, but I’d rather have under-baked brownies than over-baked brownies.  I think my brownies are just extra gooey, but that makes them all the better, right?

Unfortunately, I don’t have any vanilla ice cream, or any ice cream at all for that matter, but I do think a scoop of vanilla ice cream would compliment a square of these brownies perfectly.  They taste really nice, and I can assure you that I will definitely be making these again.

    Wow! These look SO good! I can almost smell them. :) I love how the inside looks SO dark and moist and delicious and the top “crust” (for lack of better term) surrounds it. This looks like the perfect brownie to me!

    Thanks Rich, these brownies are indeed VERY good, and they are even better the next day! These may become my go-to brownie and I would highly recommend to anyone to bake a batch of these!

    Hi gals, now that my taste buds are going crazy for these bittersweet chocolate brownies, all the links to the recipes are dead ends. The photo link on Tastespotting goes to go daddy, and they are for sale there for $7 something, and the slow as honey doesn’t get me to it either. Google search also goes to go daddy. Did go daddy hijack the photo link on the brownies? They must have more important things to do. Maybe it’s just my own inept search…but please clue me in where I can really get the recipe. I liked visiting the sites and the photos look great. Thank you.
