My Husband is the one who bakes at home and he has been baking brownies for quite some time now that he had somehow made them a bit more special. Aside from following the recipe above:

(1) He makes sure that the dark chocolate he uses are of good quality. There are cheaper brands of chocolates that taste alright but we always choose brands that we know would deliver the taste we are aiming for even if it means paying more.

(2) He puts the baking tray on the lowest level of the oven to achieve a more moist and chewy texture for the brownies.

(3) He sprinkles icing sugar on top of the brownies.

Happy baking and enjoy the brownies!
