I've never been very happy with the brownies I make at home. They've always lacked a certain something. Just the other day, we were at a reception at the local university and they served what I have been searching for: a dense, fudgy (but not candylike) brownie with chocolate frosting. These kinds of brownies are great cold, and often have walnuts in them (the only time I like nuts in my brownies). It is unlikely that I'd be able to procure the recipe from the reception, so, barring that, does anyone have a recipe for such a brownie that they'd be willing to share?
(My brownie quest was exacerbated by watching "The Secret Life of...Brownies" on Food Network last night. After watching that, I needed me some brownies, and bad!)
