Oh my gosh! I must run to the supermarket! Sounds so good, thanks for the recipe, and I will let you know how they turn out.

PS - just checked out 53 reviews on the Chowhound board and everyone pretty much agreed that these are great brownies. Also looked at the original recipe at The Washington Post. Amazing. Cocoa is expensive here - not sure if I can bring myself to use $5 worth of cocoa to make one batch of brownies....
Like I said, they're a little gooey in the middle and very rich. Just delicious. The second time I made them, I baked them in a 10x13 pan, thinking they would spread out and not be so gooey. They did and weren't, but they weren't as intensely chocolatey, either.

You could make half the batch in an 8x8 pan. They're so rich, you really only need a small piece to be satisfied

I'm so glad you enjoyed them, Babe. Isn't it great when something just works? I love this recipe. (I always make a mess with the cocoa too.) But they taste SO good.

Personally around here it takes an armed guard to get them safely in the oven otherwise everyone will just eat all the batter!! LOL.
Which is not a bad idea, just mix it up and let em eat it LOL. Those Man Catcher Brownies sound great, but if I make them I won't end up....?? LOL.
