first off, let me just say that initially i'd thought that i'd never heard of such heresy before. then i realized that perhaps you haven't read the entire
recipe. most of them say something like: "makes 24 1" x 1 1/2" brownies"
experienced bakers know that these are serving sizes for diabetics and people with allergies to chocolate. a more common portion would be about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" or even 3" x 3". if you find a recipe that states that it makes a dozen brownies, consider that it really
makes 4 individual servings for someone with a normal
brownie appetite, or 6 servings for those who are dieting or worried about their cholesterol.
