These treats were inspired by the "brownie scene" in the movie "Notting Hill". The characters stage a contest to determine whose life is more miserable and whom should enjoy the last brownie left over from dinner. They passed around a mega brownie that seemed luscious. I had to replicate it. This one is big, hunky, decadent, and the one I make almost weekly. It is that good. For the holidays, as referenced on Martha Stewart Everyday Cooking on Sirius Radio, I mentioned how I also cut this tiny and roll them in confectioners' sugar for a special look. You can also roll them in cocoa for a truffle-styled brownie. Or drizzle on a few types of melted chocolate (why stop at one type?). Lately I also line the pan with parchment paper. Bake the brownies, semi freeze and then flip them out on a board to cut neatly. These are dense and chewy but not muddy or stick-in-your-throat brownies. They are wonderful with icing but they always disappear before I can even frost an inch of them.
