Healthier Fudgy Brownies

Amanda and Mason raved about the America's Test Kitchen Brownies recipe that they had for Valentines Day.  I have been trying to cook several recipes from The America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook and the book has a Makeover Spotlight for the Fudgy Brownies recipe.  The recipe reduced the amount of bittersweet chocolate and used dutch-processed cocoa along with a tablespoon of chocolate syrup.  They also replace 6 tablespoons of butter with 2 tablespoons of light sour cream, and eliminate one egg yolk.

The end result......drum rolll.......good but not amazing (3 out of 5 stars).  I had high hopes because America's Test Kitchen usually rocks.  Also a serving size is a 1"x1" brownie.  Who can eat something that small?!? I had two and felt ripped off.
