Large brownies for chocolate lovers

Brownies for Chocolate Lovers

My friend Candace said that there was no such thing as a dense brownie made with cocoa powder. Now there is!
This brownie with a chewy crust can be eaten as is, dusted with powdered sugar or frosted.
My other friend Kate has replaced her long standing Hershey recipe for this one.

Very Good! My husband is a chocolate lover. He raved about the flavor and density of this brownie. It is more cake like than I like but remained moist and very enjoyable. It is not a spongy consistency. I doubled the recipe and the next time around I would use 4 eggs instead of 6. This might make it less cake like. I highly recommend using the nibs. Wow, what a great addition to this brownie. I will use these nibs for many other recipes as well.

Before I try this recipe can you tell me if the butter should salted or unsalted. Also did she use regular or kosher salt? Thank you.
