I need the best brownie recipe ever.....

My husband wants brownies bad. I dont have the boxed stuff, but I have cocoa powder (the baking kind), semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and other ingredients. I wanna surprise him with homeade brownies. Any favorite recipes, ladies??

    These are wheat-free but you can straight up substitute regular flour. Just cook them about 15-20 minutes. You want them under-done.

    it's the method that matters. Stove top to ice bath to oven. Trust me.

  • This is from a Baker's chocolate box in the '70s.
    This is, without a doubt, the finest browie recipe (of course, I make a couple of substitutions) :
    4 squares Bakers unsweetened chocolate (I use whatever fair trade chocolate I can find
    1.5 sticks of butter (I usually use Earth Balance)
    2 cups sugar (succant gives these a really nice flavor)
    3 eggs or egg substitute
    1 tsp vanilla (I usually substitute about a tablespoon of good, dark rum; this really gives these a nice, rich flavor)
    1 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    1 cup chopped pecans (I usually use 1/2 cup of nuts and 1/2 cup of dried cranberries)
    Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour (I use cocoa to keep these looking nice) a 9x13 pan. Beat sugar and eggs; mix in sugar; add vanilla and flour and mix well; add nuts. Pour into pan; bake 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. I like really fudgy brownies, so these come out of the oven at 30m
