Up close and personal. I think the recipe turned out well. I found it on a website while browsing my favorite site (www.bakingbites.com). It's an Epicurious recipe. I did think it odd they included no salt. I added a little by mixing salted and unsalted butter. Salt is very important in treats (though that seems an oxymoron). Salt intensifies the flavor. So your chocolate is more chocolate and your lemon is more lemon. A little should help. You stir toffee bits into the batter and then you add a dark ganache to the top and add more toffee bits and some chopped almonds and chill before cutting. I didn't like the toffee and almonds without any baking so I put the brownies into my small convention oven to slightly melt the toffee bits and I think it is better this way.
