I personally can't think of a brownie I've met that I haven't enjoyed, but I do have a preference in regards to what type of brownie I truly love. I am in the chewy camp myself; I crave a brownie that's moist, gooey, and borderline fudgy.
What about you? Do you like your brownies chewy, fudgy, or cakey? Here are 15 recipes that are sure to satisfy anyone, regardless of their favorite brownie style.

People on Team Fudgy expect their brownies to taste like, well, fudge. These brownies should be dense, extra rich, and packed with chocolate flavor. These are the kind of brownies that almost require a cold glass of milk alongside them.
Add a little more flour to your brownie batter and the result is cakey brownies, which are a bit lighter than the others, with a fluffy crumb. They're still filled with all the chocolate goodness, however, and taste like the best slice of chocolate cake.
Team Swirled, Frosted, and Flavored
While there are brownie purists, there are also those who throw caution to the wind and swirl the batter with all sorts of tasty things, frost the baked goods with sugary goodness, and flavor them with whatever strikes the mood.
