Oh, look away or X the page if you are still going strong with your healthy resolution!
It seems cracks start to appear around my healthy resolution. How many of us are still holding tight to our wishful healthy lifestyle? All I can say I have done well for the past 30 days (barely!) and the “reward” for my effort is of course a super duper chocolatey brownies to make up for lost time!
Also, just in time for Valentine’s days which only 7 days away and I feel it’s my “duty” as a food blogger to seduce you with an extreme chocolatey post. 😉
Yes, normally you’d add nuts to brownies. It only makes sense to do so. You need some crunchiness to complement the dense and moist texture. However, for a chocolate deprived person like myself, crunchiness for this instance, is secondary. I want chocolate in every crumb, no interference from walnuts, pecans and dried fruits. Therefore, it’s only make sense to up the chocolate stake in the brownies by adding MORE chocolate – chocolate bits in this case unless you’re feeling diligent and willing to chop the chocolate yourself. There’s no such thing as chocolate overdose, no?

Oh boy, those look super fudgy and good. Your pictures of this are awesome! I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called “Sweets for a Saturday” (it will be open until Monday evening) and I’d like to invite you to stop by and link these brownies up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/02/sweets-for-saturday-3.html
Thanks for your invitation. I’ll check it out. 😀
I know I really need to be careful about yr brownie! It looks so indulging and addictive 🙂
I gotta be careful too, hehe! They are indeed addictive. 😛
Oooh, this is our kind of dessert! So deliciously moist and chocolaty! Perfect, Emily!
Thanks Liz. I think this is every chocoholic’s kind of dessert (myself included). 🙂 They are too chocolatey (and it’s a good thing) and I have a hard time to keep my hands off them. 😉
Mmm, Emily! These look so good. I’ve been doing ok with my eating healthy resolution. I was on vacation for half of January so that part doesn’t count though! And this past weekend, because it was superbowl weekend. But other than that I think I’m doing ok. I want some of these brownies… Like right now.
It looks like you are still on the right track when it comes to eating healthy. Good on you, Roxan! I guess it’s ok to have cheat days occasionally. However, for anyone who is reading my blog, my cheat day seems to be almost everyday, hehe! I’m just going to play I’m-still-young-and-my body-can-still-handle-my-unhealthy-ways card for now, hehe!
I think I could eat this all day long, because I love such delicious looking things 🙂
Thanks Paula. I take that “staying healthy” is not part of your new year resolution? hehe 😉
This looks wonderful.
Thanks Joy. 🙂
I am drooling. This looks awesome, I love brownies.
Thanks for your kind words. It’s hard to hate brownies, don’t you agree? 😉
I need these and I need them now 🙂 I’m having a huge brownie attack thanks to your yummy pictures! Great recipe!
I wish I can offer you some. The portion from the above recipe is abundant for 2 people, not that I’m complaining. 😉 Thanks for your lovely comment. 🙂

I am so with you about not abusing the wonderful thing that is a brownie with nuts and suchlike. I am on a quest at the moment for the perfect brownie so will make these to see how they measure up to the current fave – white and dark choc toffee brownie.
I’ve just popped them in the oven……fingers crossed. Love chocolate and not so keen on nuts so this one was the go for sure. Thanks for the beaut recipe and pics
