best brownie ever.

i'll let you in on a little secret. while i'm a proponent to scratch made, i'm a big fan of the good ole dunkin hines brownie mixes. quick, easy, & never fail they're a sure fire way to cheer me up. when i received our February glossy edition of bon apetit magazine in my mailbox i was greeted with a cover that touts "best-ever brownies. warning you will eat the entire tray." wouldn't that peek any brownie lovers interest?

challenge accepted, bon appetit, challenge accepted. i whipped up a batch of
Coco Brownies with Brown Butter and Walnuts .

What you'll need to gather:

1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs, chilled
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup walnut pieces (if you want, i left these out)

Now go here and print your recipe and whisk away.

In the end you'll get this:

& you'll be happy, & have a happy husband, & have an empty pan (as promised.)
