  1. To avoid dry brownies- do not overbake. Check brownies for doneness at 22-23 minutes.
  2. Add as few or as many white chocolate chips to your preference. White chocolate chips will add additional sweetness.
  3. Do not overmix the batter. Gently fold the dry ingredients with the wet. This will yield a more tender and soft brownie.
