A highly rated recipe for chewy fudge brownies is Nestle's Chewy Cocoa Brownies, which calls for about 10 ingredients and takes around 20 minutes to prepare. Another good chewy brownie recipe is The New York Times' Chewy Fudge Brownies. This recipe uses less ingredients than the Nestle recipe and includes toasted walnuts.
To make Nestle's Chewy Cocoa Brownies, mix together 1 2/3 cups sugar, 3/4 cup melted butter and 2 tablespoons water, and then add in 2 eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine 1 1/3 cups flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and then mix in 3/4 cup chopped nuts. Place the batter in a greased 9-by-13 inch pan, and bake the brownies for 18 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until a toothpick placed in the center comes out a little sticky. If desired, dust the tops of the brownies with powdered sugar before cutting them into bars.
The New York Times brownie recipe calls for toasting walnuts at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for eight to 10 minutes. Instead of using cocoa powder, these brownies use a mixture of melted butter and chocolate to get the fudgy texture.
