I was looking for a recipe to use some sweet potatoes in, and thought this would please my chocoholic husband and daughter. This recipe is quite rich, so a small piece will do. Inserting a toothpick to check for doneness doesn't work for this brownie since it's so moist and dense. It was a creative effort to use sweet potatoes, but even my husband and daughter said to not make it again. I think you have to be a die-hard chocolate lover to appreciate this recipe. Thanks anyway.
