4 Levels of Brownies: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

How do you like your brownies? Gooey? Cakey? We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of the brownie. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which brownie was the best?
Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/bourbon-salted-caramel-brownie-recipe

    This is my brownie recipe I made myself: dark , semi sweet, and milk chocolate, espresso powder, Dutch coco powder, butter (I’m thinking about browning it just to see how it tastes than just melted butter) eggs, sugar, dark and light brown sugar, vanilla extract, all purpose flour, natural coco powder, then get a thick semi sweet chocolate bar and cut it into chunks, put half the batter into a pan, put half those chunks on top of it, put on the rest of the batter, and put the rest of the chunks on it. U can add caramel if ud like.
