Polly's Fudgy Brownies

Not sure what happened to this posting while I was enhancing - supposed to to my blog's template format.  This Fudgy Brownie's blog's text comes with highlighted background that I could not get rid of.  So, I am trying it again.
I think this is my very first post for Brownies - Fudgy style.
I came across this recipe while trying to nurse my foot back to normal after the bunion surgery.
Let me warn you - if you have a bad deformed foot/toe(s) caused by bunion - pray that your recovery would be smooth.  Take good care of your feet so you can cook and bake without pain.

Fudgy Brownies
Mix everything by hand with spatula and or spoon
Bainmarie - in a heat proof bowl Melt 6 oz - 1/2 semi bitter Chocolate chips and 1/2 Milk chocolate chips  over a simmering pot of water and add 1 stick of Butter.  Stir to melt with chocolate and butter.  Remove from the pot. Dry the exterior of the bowl.
Slowly mix in 1-1/2 c sugar into chocolate mixture.   The mixture will become grainy.

 Add egg one at a time - 3 eggs;  Stir well at each addition.  The mixture will look smoother.
DRY ingredients:  SHIFT together -
1/4 c cocoa powder.  (Dutch  processed cocoa gives darker color and "Hershey's Natural" gives reddish color.)
 Pinch of Salt
1/2 c + 1 Tbsp Flour
Add to chocolate mixture

Preheat oven to 350'F
Line 8x8 baking with buttered parchment or aluminum.  If aluminum, shift cornstarch in to coat the buttered surface.
Bake in 350'F 30 to 35 min or until the tester comes out a bit with dry solid, but not wet.
Use hot blade knife to slice and wipe blade in between each cut.

 Nice Shiny Crust!  Soft fudgy center.

Tasty Ideas - Brownie ice-cream sandwich:
 If you didn't finish it all, slice them into halves crosswise.
Slice out frozen ice-cream into same shape.  Sandwich it between the brownies.
Wrap them up with foil to freeze or eat it just like that.
Enjoy a frozen brownie ice-cream sandwich.
