Chewy brownie using cocoa powder

I've lost my recipe. I really like the one on the back of the Ghirardelli can with the sweet chocolate, but I only have their regular cocoa right now. I don't like brownies that are wet and raw seeming, I think people call those fudgy, but that is all I can find. I'd like just to make 9x9 or 8x8 quantity. And I always add nuts but I don't like anything else in it right now. Just want something basic and simple but the ones I find have very little cocoa, like 1/4 cup so I know they would be awful. Anyone?

Absolutely! Alice Medrich's cocoa brownies are the bomb. I wrote a blog post about it w/ the recipe here: http://salvegging.blogspot.com/2013/05/cocoa-brownies.html

Those sound to me like the raw and wet fudgy kind, though I do see compliments on the all over. They only have 1/2 cup flour iirc.

They are only wet if you underbake them. I don't like that kind, so I bake them for the full 35 mins and they are definitely chewey and cooked!

Mine are dense without the unappealing raw texture you don't like. Once they are cool and set (12 hours), you get a good clean cut on them.

Have you looked in the Ghirardelli web site? It is likely they have the recipe you are looking for posted there. Good luck! There is nothing worse than loosing a good recipe.

I didn't lose the Ghirardelli recipe, I just don't have the right product to make those. I lost my other one. Cynthia, yours sound like what I wanted but I don't have anything but cocoa, can't get to the store easily with fractured ankle. (well I have bittersweet with nibs.) I guess I will try the first recipe since it is raved on everywhere. Browned butter brownies sound interesting too!

King Arthur Fudge Brownies are my go to recipe. They use a good amount of both cocoa and flour and are mistake proof.

This is an old recipe that used to be on tins of Nestle cocoa powder. These were the brownies my mom made 30 years ago
