Voila, brownies to share with your loved ones!
The recipe makes chewy brownies. You could even use this recipe to make cookies. Instead of filling your brownie pan to the brim, simply pour about 1/3 of your batter such that the pan only has a thin layer. Because the batter is thinner, the end result is that you will get a hard cookie type brownie.
If you want light and fluffy brownies, separate the egg-whites from the yolks and beat the egg-whites till stiff. Continue with step 1 except use only half the egg-whites. Add the remaining egg-white after step 2. Be gentle about it and try not to deflate the air bubbles in the egg-white.
Notice that the recipe uses cocoa. If you only have blocks of baking chocolate, you could still make this but they would be the oozy gooey kind of chocolate brownies, which I’m sure lots of people love too.
