Recipe Tips

- To substitute unsweetened cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate, use 3 tablespoons unsweetened 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.

- For tender brownies, stir brownie mixture just until smooth; do not over-mix.

This makes more of a cake-like brownie rather than a chewy brownie. Also, the directions for the peanut butter swirl part are not consistent with the ingredient list, quarter cup of sugar or butter? I used both. I'd skip this one. It's ok but I've baked better.
