Recipe Tips

- To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons cocoa plus 1 tablespoon butter for each ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate. To substitute unsweetened cocoa for semi-sweet baking chocolate, use 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa plus 4 teaspoons sugar plus 2 teaspoons butter for each ounce of semi-sweet baking chocolate.

- Reduce the baking temperature by 25°F if using dark or nonstick baking pan.

- To prepare brownies in a 13x9-inch baking pan, double all ingredients. Bake 35-40 minutes or until brownie begins to pull away from sides of pan.

- For the most tender brownies, stir brownie batter just until smooth; do not overmix.
