My kids love them, they all ways want me to make them. I drizzle them with melted chocolate and vanilla-flavored candy coating. Delicious!

These are probably 4 stars as written since several people found them to be dry but with the addition of 2 extra tablespoons of butter and chocolate chips instead of walnuts I think they are 5 star taste--rich fudgy and delicious! We did have to add about 8 minutes to the baking time. Will make again with these changes. Read More

Yuck! I doubled this recipe and it turned out dry and really bland. My siblings the cookie-and-brownie lovers don't even ask for any. I'm going to look for another recipe because this one wasn't any good. Read More

WOW WOW WOW!! I have made many different brownies from various recipes and this is THE BEST by far. My whole family went crazy over these and they did not last the night. Will be making these A LOT. No need to search for that perfect brownie recipe any longer....I've found it. I did add more butter than it called for though and I suggest USING PECANS!!!! We ate it still warm with ice cream and....well....they are excellent!!!! Read More

I've never made brownies from scratch before so I went perfectly by the recipe minus the nuts and it turned out GREAT! A little cakier than I prefer but moist and BODACIOUS! And so easy satisfied my craving for baking and chocolate. Read More

These turned out great for me! Hubby loves them; so do I. They satisfied my craving for chocolate - I didn't have any chocolate baking squares on hand only cocoa powder -so this recipe was PERFECT! And sooo easy to make - I followed the advice of others and added 2 extra T butter as well as substituting choc. chips for walnuts. Added 8 minutes to the bake time - perfect moist light delicious brownies. I am saving this recipe to use again! Read More

Good. I did put in about 1/4c milk chocolate chips in place of the nuts. Also a little extra butter. I usually always like home-made over box but I still think boxed fudge like brownies are better. I don't think I like unsweetened cocoa all that much. After my husband ate them he said give them a 5 I love them! Read More

I LOVE brownies and these are delicious. I'm not a very good baker but these are so easy to make. But it came out a little crumbly. Read More
