Expert Tips

Use your favorite nut for these decadent brownies. For a tropical twist, try macadamia nuts or a cashew-macadamia mix.

For super-easy cleanup, line your baking pan with foil that is longer than the pan. Spray the bottom of the foil as directed. When brownies are cool, lift them out of the pan by the foil "handles," peel back foil and cut brownies.
