Recipe: Brownies

I am not a desert lover, neither am I a cake lover. But I have recently found the niche of eating brownies. Especially when I first tasted the Chocolate Brownies from Secret Recipe. It was yummy.... the best brownies I have had so far. Oh, did I mentioned that I only love it in chocolate flavour? Well, if you get me anything that has chocolate in it, you won't be wrong.

Anyway, I would like to try out making my own brownies one day. And I've scout out the recipes and here are a few which I haven't try making any of them though. I don't know which one tastes better. Do let me know if any of you have tied it out.
