Claire Saffitz Makes Malted “Forever” Brownies | Dessert Person. Allow us to get philosophical for a minute: brownies contain multitudes. Is there a more metamorphic recipe out there? Brownie recipes can be cakey, chewy, light, dense, fudgy, tender, shiny, matte, bitter, sweet, thin, thick — and yet, they’re all brownies. Claire’s favorite brownie is chocolatey but not too intense brownies with multiple textures, but chewiness above all. Enter, Claire’s recipe for Malted Forever Brownies — so good, it’s pretty much the only one she plans on making until the end of time. Check out the video for all Claire’s tips on making the best brownies, which, unfortunately, includes chilling at the end! You won’t regret the extra step.
