Moist ’n’ Chewy Chocolate Brownies

These brownies contain a little less chocolate than some of the more luscious ones, but they still have rich chocolate flavor. Their texture is pleasantly moist and chewy.

NotesThese brownies are quite dense and chewy. If you prefer them more cake-like, add an egg.

Instead of greasing pans, line them with parchment paper that extends up the sides and over the edges so you can lift out the brownies in a block. Spraying the pan lightly with cooking spray or greasing it lightly before adding the parchment helps the paper to stick, preventing it from shifting.
