If I am allowed to post a link, the Supernatural Brownies were published in the NYTimes. See.
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/11/dining/111brex.html

I make them without the nuts as I am allergic.

You will be astonished at how many are already posted.

I personally have posted my two favorites. (Use advanced search and type Brownies and then my name in User to find them) I'm a bigger fan of the cakey brownies but the fudgy ones are stellar too. I would also recommend looking up corazon's double decker brownies, they are the latest fan favorite here.
Jillion's of recipes doesn't mean they're better than ATK...ATK taste test recipes and determines the best results. Point of this tread was to see if anyone has tasted ATK's recipe and has determined they've found a better tasting recipe. Thank you for the few who have posted recipes or links to recipes...I am hoping that future post (if there are any, lol) confirm they have tried ATK's recipe... :D

I am sorry, Bacardi. Taste is subjective. I prefer the two recipes that I listed but you may not. Some people like cakey brownies whereas others like fudgelike candy ones. Not knowing you personally, I have no idea what your likes are but I tried to tell you what mine were and what my friends and family appreciate. When it comes to Baking Illustrated, a cookbook that I own, you will find recipes that have been tested and will work but that does not mean they will meet your taste. The same is true of the Bakers Dozen group that tests dessert recipes over and over again. Taste is not a democratic thing. Either you like it or you don't. Gee, I didn't mean to wax philosophic on you, I was just doing my best to explain.

Same with me PieSusan. I'm not a fan of ATK. I prefer my OWN kitchen.

Sorry to have stepped on your toes Bacardi.

As far as I know, the rules here state that we can't post copyrighted recipes, but we can post links. Here are links to the two favorites I mentioned:
Fine Cooking's Chewy Brownies (note: I bake these for less time than indicated):
Chewy Brownies - Fine Cooking
Cook's Illustrated's Super Fudgy Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies:

To add, I have tried about 20 recipes, most have just simply stunk vs ATK...I have never had better than ATK, but I'm sure they're out there, It'd be great to find a SINGLE source who could provide that.

Bacardi, there are two types of brownies. Cakey or fudgy and never the twain shall meet. I'm guessing ATK brownies are of the fudgy type?

Thanks. Then I definitely won't bother trying them as I'm a cakey brownie fan myself. I think they would get left on the counter a long time in my house. Sorry. No help here.
