A double dose of chocolate -- bittersweet and cocoa powder -- makes these brownies the most satisfying around. The thin crust gives way to a rich, fudgy interior.

      Alton Brown has a fabulous recipe using only cocoa powder. My daughter-in-law says it's the best brownie she ever tasted. He's either on Food Network or Cooking Channel. You'll find the recipe on one of those web sites.

    I can't eat milk chocolate, anyone have a suggestion of a replacement with no dairy or lactose, or do you think just the cocoa powder would be fine? Thanks!

    Great quick, basic brownie. Mine took 32 minutes. I'd suggest setting your timer for 25 and seeing how much longer you need from there.

    If you want to kick your brownies up a notch, then you have to try these Mexican chocolate brownies. They are a perfect combination of sweet and heat - you will not be disappointed!
