This is what I think Dorie’s introductory paragraph should have said:
The recipe tastes like brownies from a box without all the pesky corn syrup and multi-syllabic ingredients.
Seriously. After I ate one (or more) it hit me. These brownies taste just like a box mix. They are super duper moist but light on chocolate flavor. So, if you are partial to that kind of brownie but leery of anything with that long of a shelf life. These are for you, friend.
Leave me the super chocolaty ones. Thank you, very much.
