Patisserie chef Lorraine Godsmark recommends following the recipe as it is for the first time, then halving the recipe if it's liked.

Then, according to taste, experiment with all dark-chocolate, hazelnuts instead of macadamias, and cooking brownies a little less for a softer consistency. "The joy of eating them is when they're not overcooked," she says.
