I kinda wish I was kidding when I say that I tested these brownies 4 times before I was happy with them. But alas, I am not kidding. And I did in fact make these brownies 4 times before I was truly happy with them. To be honest, it was frustrating and annoying. But, I had my mind set on some brownies with that signature crinkly top, and I damnit I was stopping at nothing short of that.
The first day that I made these, I tried them three separate times. Writing down what I liked and disliked about each one… the taste, the texture, the way they looked. And slowly but surely with my own critiquing, a few youtube videos, and a solid 7 hours of sleep, I made them the next morning. And… wellllll… magic was made.
They were well worth the wait, and the frustration. I finally got my crinkly tops and the fudgy center that I dreamed about. Not to mention, I got those things without the seemingly raw or dense gooeyness that you get with some brownies. Not to say those textures are bad, but they aren’t my taste.
So with no time to spare… the brownie recipe! Please note — a hand mixer is essential here in order to get these beloved crackly tops. 🙂
If you made this recipe, I’d love to see it! Let me know in the comments and tag me on IG at @simply_unbeetable 🙂
