When I picked up The Perfect Scoop last year, I read through the Introduction and The Basics chapter then drooled over about 15 recipes I wanted to make immediately.  But somehow I neglected to pay much attention to the Vessels chapter at the end of the book.  Vessels, as in what you put your ice cream in or on top of, not as in boats…though, I suppose theoretically similar concepts.  Anyway, I’d heard about these brownies in passing over the past year and never thought to make them until I decided to make some Milk Chocolate Ice Cream where David suggests adding brownie chunks to the ice cream.  Well, this could have been the best idea I’ve ever acted on because these brownies were hands down the BEST brownies I’ve ever eaten.  Ever.  And if you’ve been reading SLH for long enough, you know that I’ve tried a few different recipes.  This one tops them all.  These brownies are just as they are promised to be – chewy and dense.  And utterly delicious.  I added 3/4 cup of Heath Bar bits (which you can find in just about any grocery store baking isle) in place of the nuts and they melted into the brownies as they baked – pure heaven!!3
