HELPFUL TIPS NOT MENTIONED: I've been on a brownie rampage for the past month,and have made 10 recipes! THIS is the only one that consistency comes out the same!!!! What's best about it is, ...there aren't 100 reviews changing how to do it b/c it's good as is! What's not mentioned is, the exact same recipe (taste, chewy, big) is on here, but in cookie form!!! How wonderful is that esp. if you love this recipe like my family and husbands soldiers we send this to do?! You can find it under "Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie" ...the title is exactly how they always turn out. I love this in brownie AND cookie form, so try both!!! Also, I prefer the chocolate chips to be mixed IN instead of on top, but it's all about preference! It would be overkill to add more than recommended though. When I double the recipe, I still only put a heaping 2/3 C of cc, and it's MORE than enough. TWICE I have won best chocolate chip cookie on our military base due to this recipe. Read More

As far as I'm concerned, just about everything is wrong with these bars. Too sweet. Too gushy. Too brown sugary. Just a soft, sloppy, sweet glob of sugar butter. I'm afraid these made their way into the trash, because just as there's too many good books out there to waste your time reading a bad one, there's just too many good sweet treats out there to waste your time eating one that's not.

Marvelous, absolutely fantastic! I doubled the recipe (the only thing I changed) and used a 13x9 pan allowing a bit longer cooking time. Others have said these are "too sweet". Most blonde brownies I tried were disappointing as they were not sweet enough. My preferences in dessert run on the "rich" side". If you like rich desserts as I do, make as is for an 8x8 pan or double the recipe for a 13x9. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! Read More

Excellent. I have been looking for a good recipe for "blondies" for a long time! Like many reviewers, I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13 inch pan. I also left out the nuts at mixed the chocolate chips right into the batter- would definitely recommend doing this! BUT, do NOT store in the refrigerator!! They were so great at first but got ruined when I put them in the refrigerator. They got really hard, like little bricks! Oh well, I'll just have to make them again! I'm sure no one will complain about that... Read More

These brownies won me a Blue ribbon in the State fair culinary department and a grand champion from my family. I will definitely be trying this recipe again. The chocolate chips were very good with the flakey brownie and the brownie itself was moist in the middle and chewy throughout!!! Read More

This recipe is just like the one I made years ago and I could never find it again. It came out perfectly. Nice and chewy, not too cakey, not too sweet. I doubled the recipes and I did cut down on the baking powder some. It seemed like a lot to me. I think I used about 3/4 of the recommended amount maybe a little bit less. I also used brownulated light brown sugar. Ya know, the one that pours ;). Oh, yeah, I cooked them in a 13x9 glass pan and did spray the pan lightly with cooking spray I also cooked them for slightly longer than the suggested time. My oven is brand new so I know the temperature is correct. They needed an extra 10 minutes or so. They came out excellent. Perfect. Read More

Double this recipe and bake in a 9x13. These are to die for...so, you'll need twice as many. I love to mix butterscotch and chocolate chips. Yum! Read More

These were really good. I omitted the walnuts. I also subsituted the chocolate chips for M&M's. I stirred them into the batter which made a neat chocolate-y center, and a two tone contrast wich was pretty. I submited a photo. I baked it on 325 for 25 minutes. The texture was exactly as it should be, just like a fugdy brownie without being underdone. Yummy. Next time I might try the swirled white and chocolate chips, because the M&M's weren't sweet enough for my taste. Read More
