Introduction

I didn't see a recipe anywhere online that would yield the kind of brownies I wanted with the kind of numbers I wanted, so I experimented.

These are made the way I learned how to make gourmet brownies, melting the chocolate & fat and adding the wet, then dry ingredients. The results is a dense, fabulous death by chocolate brownie you & the kids will love. Just don't tell them what's in it!

Average brownies have about 312 calories; 123 fat calories; 31g cholesterol; 47g carbs; 2g fiber; 33g sugars; 3g protein - these nutrition numbers are quite a bit better!

Stir brown sugar and vanilla into chocolate mixture until smooth.
Add eggs 1 at a time, breaking yolks to make it easier to incorporate.
