For some time I've been making the traditional "fudge brownies" that are composed if a lot of butter, melted chocolate and white sugar, and then a little bit of flour (Fudge Brownies I Recipe - Allrecipes.com). They are okay but my husband is not a big fan and I find that they are quite sugary and not really sticky like fudge (except the edge) nor dense like chocolate cake.

Can anyone throw me your best gooey, dense brownie recipe. No nuts please!

Jackie I love my brownies gooey to :) So we just use a box mix...any box mix. Add about half a large bag of choc chips, bake, and than when they are done we pour the other half a bag of chips on top till it melts and than spread, and let cool.
***many times on the box mixes the also have "hints for chewier brownies" the recipe just varies a bit.

Thanks! That recipe is almost exactly the same as the one I've been working with (see link above). Maybe my technique is off? Maybe I should mix by hand?

Box brownies are more gooey, eh? Haha! Maybe I'll have to find out what they put in there!

I'm not sure where I read it but with baked goods you aren't supposed to over mix but just mix until blended. I thought the reasoning was over mixing dried them out. You can always pull them out of the oven a few minutes early and they will be runny goey!

I just noticed the recipe I pulled up has 8 oz of unsweetened chocolate plus 1 cup of chocolate chips and your recipe is just 4 oz of chocolate total--the 12 ounces of extra chocolate in the la duni recipe will definitely add to the gooeyness!

You'd be surprised just how good they are... my coworkers thought they came from a bakery :)
For the heck of it try it one day :)

Brownies should be mixed by hand just until all the dry ingredients are moist. It's not like a cake where you beat for 2 min.

If you use a mix, I think Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines are the best especially the ones with chocolate chunks.

Honestly, I like the batter more than the baked brownies (with lots of chopped nuts!) ;)
