Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Ultimate cocoa brownies

    • nadiam1000 on May 01, 2013

      Very dark, intense chocolate flavor. Used Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa. Lightly toasted walnuts and added 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Did not really need chips since brownies are already very chocolaty. Batter is very thick and brownies are thin with a fudgy texture.

      The brown sugar and coffee add interesting flavor notes. I used Scharffen Berger natural cocoa and sprinkled the walnuts on the top instead of mixing them in. The baking time was several minutes longer than the recipe called for.
