    Default REC - Very Gooey Brownies

    This was posted by Sarah (don't know which one) awhile back. I've
    made them a couple times. They are pretty gooey and delicious. Read
    the notes at the end of the recipe for a good description by the
    original poster.

    NOTES : "After I made these, I made a note to myself that they are
    "VERY gooey, not a bar at all but yummy, good really only for sundae
    bottoms, with coffee ice cream, and fudge sauce over it all." I also
    served them that way for my father's birthday and the guests agreed.
    However, you may wish to eat them unadorned if you actually like to
    eat gooey brownie-like substances without a spoon. They are good, but
    I don't know that I'd go so far as to say they are finger-lickin'
    good!"

    "These were called "Cocoa Squares" in a recipe in the Washington Post
    about 6 years ago. I was not exactly able to make squares; I'd just
    call them portions. Delicious gooey chocolately globs, to be
    precise." -- Sarah

    Almost identical to my recipe, but I use 1/3 cup cocoa and add a tsp of
    vanilla (I think the vanilla is important.) Use salted butter. I
    usually double them and bake in a glass 9x13" pan, or triple and bake in
    a 4l lasagna pan.

    I may try adding extra cocoa next time and see if it makes any difference.

    Do yours turn out really gooey, or are they more like typical
    brownies? Could it be the baking time? I agree on the vanilla.

    They are more dense than typical brownies; they rise when they bake, but
    then they always fall. I wouldn't say "gooey" unless you undercook them.

    Can you leave out the nuts without replacing them with anything?

    Not bad, except you've dirtied an extra bowl. Dump everything into one
    bowl, mix it up, add the nuts (if you're using them), scrape into
    prepared pan, bake.

    That's how I usually do things, to tell you the truth. That's how I
    was taught to prepare things for baking. I just left this recipe
    completely intact, since it has such a weird outcome. I didn't want
    to make it any weirder. It's very good, though. Especially with ice
    cream. You just have to decide if you're gonna put the ice cream ON
    the brownie or UNDER the brownie. Heehee!

    Leaving the nuts out wouldn't make a bit of difference in the finished
    product, other than that it wouldn't have nuts.
