I think everyone likes their brownies a little differently. I like mine very soft and silken, less cake-like, and I like to taste (vegan) milk chocolate chips too. :)
But here I found these recipes, if they help?

I think one of the issues is that the recipes tend to favour dark chocolate, because vegan dark chocolate is much easier to source. Maybe try mixing a little vegan milk chocolate in with the dark and it will help with the richness?

Do let us know how your next batch turns out. With pictures! :)

I remember my first time making vegan brownies... I have to say I'm a terrible cook though the ones I made here

https://veganforum.co.uk/threads/vegan-brownies.51/

Tasted "ok" ;)

I've realised you don't actually need to use a ton a sugar like I have in the thread above, they taste just as well or better with less.

LOVE lasagne. One of my favourite meals. Speaking of which I tried this today for the first time (vegan Italian hard cheese) - and it's pretty great. My only criticism is that it's a little on the sweet side.

I am loving violife 'cheeses'. I'll definitely try the hard cheese winter. Do you grate it sparingly on pasta dishes?

The violife pizza cheese is fantastic- Tastes like a mild cheddar and melts well.
I slice it thinly in a toasted bagel and it melts to perfection. Just like a cheese bagel!

edit:
ooops, this is a brownies thread!
My daughter has made a few batches of vegan brownies, using coconut oil. They were delicious, I will try to note down the recipe.
