I have made lots o’ brownies with TWD (I think there are even still a couple more versions to go), but this is Dorie’s classic…no honey, no cheesecake, no Peppermint Patties…just straight-up chocolate and walnuts. This is a solid brownie, in both the solidly-good sense, and the fudgy-but-not-raw-in-the-middle sense. It’s the one to take to a bake sale, the one to put in a lunchbox, the one that will please everyone (unless they don’t like nuts, but then you just leave them out!).
Okay, I made the chocolate thing and I thought it looked really really nice and I stacked them all up sort of artsy like hoping to win this week, but NO NO NO, I get over here and you have perfect brownies cut into TRIANGLES all arranged so artsy and wonderful like a MOMA exhibit…nope, I don’t win this week…it’s you AGAIN. Nice job. Sigh.
