At long last, the owner of New York City's legendary Fat Witch Bakery shares her top-secret recipes for decadent and delicious brownies, blondies, and bars

Patricia Helding's rich, intensely chocolatey Fat Witch brownie is a New York obsession, an internet sensation, and arguably the very best brownie to be found on the planet. Unlike other bakeries that feature a range of desserts, Fat Witch, launched by Helding in 1998, specializes only in brownies--baking and selling over 2,000 each day. In Fat Witch Brownies, Helding showcases for the first time her favorite spins on the classic chocolate brownie with creations like the Banana Bread Brownieand the Breakfast Brownie, and she expands her repertoire even further with recipes for other scrumptious bar-shaped confections.

With over 50 recipes that can be baked in the same 9 x 9-inch pan and require fewer than 10 ingredients, Helding shows that baking from scratch is neither expensive nor time-consuming. All of her recipes include ingredients from local grocery stores, and are ready to serve in one hour or less. Beginning with tips on the proper tools, timing, and techniques, continuing with five chapters of recipes, and finishing with fabulous frostings, Fat Witch Brownies allows you to explore the versatilityand richness of brownies and bars and create the incredible desserts in your very own kitchen that have made Helding's bakery famous.

I attempted the peanut butter squares recipe first. It was fairly good (I always make the recipe exactly as written the first time), though too sweet. The addition of some chopped peanuts would have improved the taste. The texture was off, though. Too crunchy around the edges ("hard" would be another word...) but gummy in the middle.

Then I made the brownie recipe. It turned out looking exactly like the brownies on the cover. Again, too sweet! There was more sugar and butter in that recipe than chocolate. Something's wrong with that ratio... Given that all the other recipes are based on the classic brownie, I cut my losses and moved on. And there's still half an uneaten pan of brownies on my counter.
