Who Likes Brownies?

For me, with or without nuts, soft or crumbly... doesn't matter. Bring it on.

What's I'm looking for is the Killer Brownie recipe directly from Heaven (or maybe, since the chocolaty goodness is so sexy and desirable, from Hell). No, not the Pillsbury box. Made them, like all of us, and they're perfect in a pinch, but we're talking here about the next level up. A giant step beyond pre-mix in a box.

I've got a good recipe, which, when eaten with a tall glass of milk by any guy, works like magic. I'll share it next time out (when I'm not stealing computer time at work).

Calling for all chocolaty brownie recipes ladies, guys!

I'm guilty, of both loving chocolate and brownies. I hope your quest has resulted in a killer brownie recipe.

I stumbled upon the best brownie recipe when I bought a four in the package of Ghirardelli brownies at Costco. It's simply dolling it up with a layer of Kettle Corn popcorn, (fresh) You save some of the batter, and also add some dry roasted peanuts. I don't have it written down, but you could probably find it at www.Ghirardellimixes.com You should have a Brownie Bake Off at work. Be sure to use the Ghirardelli Brownie mix.

I wanted to thank the KettleCorn man for donating some day old popcorn, since I was making a lot of brownies. I took some to him and told him thanks, and wait until you get home and have some milk with them. "No thanks lady, I can't wait."
The next time I went to the beach, I found their stand, but his wife was running it. I asked her if John still likes the Kettle Corn brownies. She had finally met the woman who gave him the recipe. BOSHIE

I just love chocolate as well. But I'll take soft over crumbly any day--there's nothing better than feeling one melt in your mouth, all gooey and sweet...

I know of an interesting recipe for brownies but due to my being on the right side of the law I cannot divulge it to anyone. However, I can tell you that the secret ingredient will have you feeling good vibes in no time.

I sometimes kid about a pact with the devil, but if the brownies from either Kimmy's or Katie's recipies turn out as tasty as they appear they will, I suspect that some souls are on-claim.

I does like me some chocolate, so I may be copying these brownie recipes sometime soon.

Thanks the recipes, I think, when I find some time, I will heat up the oven....

I like brownies too.<br />

Thanks for the recipes

Thanks Kimmie! I'm going to try this week and will get back to you with the honest results. Here's my killer recipe. Don't leave out the touch of salt for the topping ... salty and sweet go might fine together (as we gals know). BTW, you look great. <br />
