Rich and moist dark chocolate brownies that are ideal for Valentine's Day or any other special occasion...or for a night in front of the telly with the girls. For Valentine's Day you can use a biscuit cutter to make an arrangement of heart-shaped brownies to share with your sweet-toothed loved one.
Very very easy to make and absolutely delicious! They got even better after a couple of days in the fridge. Next time I am going to add cherries for some further depth to the flavour! - 22 Aug 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. I haven't tried it yet but I am certain that cherries would make these brownies even better. You could add hazelnuts to the mix also or even dried cranberries at Christmas time! - 22 Aug 2010
I made these with regular sugar and different nuts. I didn't have a 9 x 11 pan so I used 9 x 9 and it took forever to bake and the edges were over done. I would go bigger (9 X 13 ) next time for sure. Despite my crispy edges they were very good, rich and moist without being too sweet, a little different than the usual brownies I make but very well received and all gone in 15 minutes! I would make these again. I've made these again a few times and found the following... Use a chocolate with 75% cacoa for the best colour, they come out a rich, dark brown. (55% cacoa chocolate tatsted good too but was not as appealing on the plate as the dark ones) A 9x13 pan works well but I still added 5 minutes to the baking time. The brownies also taste best when they have totally cooled. I can't wait to find another reason to bake these. Is Wednesday a good enough reason? - 28 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
