Fast ‘n’ Gooey Double-Chocolate Brownies

Main photograph of prepared recipe.

Chewy on the edges, a little crispy on the top, gooey in the middle and very, very chocolate. These are brownies for the chocolate lover who eats half a tray at a time.

Additional Notes

This is not in the podcast, because I discovered it later:

If you want all the squares to be a little chewy, instead of just the edges, add 1 cup mini-marshmallows to the dry ingredients. The last three photos show this addition.

This one additional ingredient takes these over the top, especially when they’re still warm.
