This is not that hard a recipe. The ingredients are pretty easy to find, though we had a mishap regarding the cocoa powder. Thankfully, the olfactory sweetened cocoa alerted me. This averted disaster, as otherwise the brownies would have been extremely sweet. Brownies have to strike exactly the right balance between sweet (sugar) and bitter (cocoa), which I believe these came close too. What let it down was the texture; they are tough, and not crispy on the outside and soft on the inside like they’re supposed to be. Still, I was pleased with them in general, and we certainly gobbled them up.
