I altered this recipe by using 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 4 large eggs. I am going to experiment next time with either more sugar or melted chocolate chips instead of cocoa, as the brownies were fairly bittersweet (tasted like dark chocolate), but still yummy! - 3/29/09
