My ideal brownie is loaded with chocolate chunks and so moist it almost seems cake-like. But growing up one of my biggest pet peeves was buying the boxed brownie mixes and expecting those big, thick ones pictured on the box and instead getting those flat ones that barely rose above the bottom of my 9 by 13 pan. It seemed to me if you wanted the thick slab of brownie one would have to buy two or maybe even three boxes to get the desired size. Thank goodness for being able to bake on my own as mine as you can see are thick (and completely worthy of a fork or a side of vanilla ice cream).
