90% Cocoa chocolate brownies: Great way to use the high quality chocolate !

 Baking and baking ^^, well, I can't stop (and why should I, haha).

 It came from a question that I got from P' Nut, she asked me "Can I use 90% chocolate instead of dark chocolate?", And I told her "No". 
It's the matter of taste, some people love it but many people think it too bitter to eat it on hand, but it contains less fat than ordinary dark chocolate, you can't use it without adjusting the recipe. 
But I once read that you can use it instead of unsweetened chocolate, so I wanted to try it. I used very basic chocolate brownies recipe (Katharine Hepburn's brownies, you can search a story about the brownie story on the internet ^^. ) But it's not unsweetened chocolate, a bit of adjusting is needed. 

Because the chocolate is very delicious (I love this brand "Lindt"), so you can imagine that the brownies are delicious too ^^. Anyway, the moment that it came out of the oven, I think that I did something wrong, the brownie is very dark in color, haha. But the taste is good and it's better after chilling, and as always bake it until just done (or under bake a bit, ^^), it's a great way to use the high quality chocolate, hehe.

Hi I finally made but without walnut . Just wanna check if the texture meant to be so soft inside? Or is mine undercook?

Hi, Mae Cheah
It is quite soft, but it will firm up after refrigerating^^.

My father-in-law bought a 90% Lindt bar to try it out, didn't like to just eat it so passed it on to me. I, too, did not like eating it 'raw' so Googled and found this recipe.

Awesome! These are honestly the best brownies I have ever tasted. This turned out to be more than just a way to get rid of 90% chocolate, it turned out to be incredible brownies :)
