So dense they are approaching critical mass.
aka Critical Mass Brownies
From Bon Appetit
½ lb. bitter chocolate squares (can use 1/2 cup cocoa and ½ cup oil)
½ cup butter
3 cups sugar
1.5 cups sifted flour
3 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter and chocolate. Set aside to cool. Beat eggs adding sugar slowly. Add cooled butter and chocolate. Blend in order: flour, vanilla. Use two 8 x 8 greased and floured pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Don’t over bake – the brownies should be moist (very) in the middle while warm. Let cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into squares.
The recipe calls for 2 pans but one pan can be used for thicker brownies. And as always, brownies are better the next day.
