Cooking with Kelly: Ghirardelli brownies

Diamonds are not a girl's best friend -- chocolate is. Desserts happen to be my favorite food group and I had a hankering for brownies. I have a few things in my fridge to use up and I don't want to buy anything more with my impending move, so I tried the box variety.

Ghirardelli has a reputation for chocolate; an entire San Francisco landmake dedication can't be wrong. This particular kind came with real chocolate syrup, according to the package.It looked super promising. The batter was very thick and the chocolate sauce was dark and plentiful.

I had very high hopes for this stuff. They came out of the oven yummy and gooey. The brownies were moist, but not really chocolately. You couldn't really tell that the chocolate syrup was added and the texture was nothing special.

Next time, I get the brownies with chocolate chuncks or something substantive.
