Review This Recipe
the batter for these brownies turns out way thicker than any other brownie batter i've made. so make sure you don't forget the water in the recipe! i made mine in a 9x9 inch pan and baked them for 32 or so minutes. very rich brownies! delicious. instead of nuts, i added a half-cup of semi-sweet morsels. also, i press a bunch of peanut butter pieces onto the surface AFTER they come out of the oven.
