The Best Double Chocolate Chewy Brownies

This brownie recipe went through many revisions before I decided to share it. I’m very picky about the texture of my brownies - they have to be chewy and not cakey in the slightest. I finally figured out the secret ingredients for the best chewy brownies: cornstarch! It’s essential for that chewy and fudgey consistency. Another two tips I figured out for chewy and fudgey brownies: (1) Do not over-mix the batter! Mix with a rubber spatula just enough to combine the ingredients. (2) And, do not over-bake. Bake these for exactly 28 minutes and let cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
