Today was Day #6 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

These brownies made by Chef Thomas Keller for Williams-Sonoma (stores) were expensive, and they required more steps, and a few more pans than most brownie mixes. I found myself slightly annoyed at these facts...until I tried one of these dark, moist brownies (made with Guittard chocolate) this evening. It was fantastic. Light in texture, rich in flavor.

The four eggs, butter (plus a little oil), and Guittard chocolate chips that were mixed in, all contributed to the great taste.

I also had fun decorating one brownie with a "brownie tattoo" from Gartner Studios (Duff Goldman line - of Charm City Cakes).
