Good Housekeeping's Fudgy Brownies

Before attempting baked-from-scratch brownies, I always used to rely on baked-from-box brownies as a way to please my brownie cravings. For a good part of my life, I thought brownies couldn't get better than the ones that came from the Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge brownie mix. They were so good, and so chewy, and so fudgy that honestly, I thought that non-mix brownies would never live up to that pedestal. So, one day, I drove to the closest Barnes & Noble and I bought 2 brownie books. For this week's 2 brownie posts, I'll only be using 1 of the books. For next week's posts, expect to see recipes from the 2 books I was able to find :) Unfortunately, once again, the humidity/fog took control of my camera's lens and the picture didn't come out very nice, but what can I do? I can't fight with mother nature!

Today's recipe is Good Housekeeping's Fudgy Brownies. According to the authors of Good Housekeeping: Brownies!, "Ultrarich with lots of deep, dark chocolate flavor, these brownies are fabulous with or without the praline topping (Steph Side Note: The praline topping variation will be the next brownie post, so stay tuned!). For a moist, fudgy texture, do not overbake."

  2. Is it that foggy in Florida? I hope not! I'm going to Orlando in a couple of weeks.

    I'll take a home-made brownie over a box-mix brownie any day! When I make them myself I substitute a good amount of semisweet chocolate for milk chocolate. It makes them slightly less chocolate-y. I'm not such a chocolate-lover. (though I couldn't live without it :P)

    1. It's not the Florida's foggy. It's just that when you step outside from a cold house to a humid outdoors, the camera lens fogs up because of the change of temperature hehehe You're going to Orlando??? Are you going to Disney?? I'm the same way... I'm not a hardcore chocolate-lover, but I definitely can't live without it =)
