FANTASTIC RECIPE! I made a few minor changes - I used 2 cups of chocolate chips instead of the m&ms (one to mix in the brownies one to sprinkle on top). I also added a cup of chopped walnuts. I baked them in a 13x9 pan for about 40 minutes - delicious! Read More

I prepared the recipe as written except that I left out the M&M's and 1 of the cups of chocolate chips. The brownies were very cake like (even in a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan) and kinda tough. I didn't find them to be particularly moist either. They were SUPER FAST to make though. I probably won't make them again unless I am short on time. Read More

These brownies taste like chocolate cake! They were good very moist in the center & I did get a lot of compliments on it! (although nobody called it a brownie they kept asking for more cake!).. I baked it for 35 minutes in a 9x13 pan.. Thanks! Read More

These were really simple! I had run out of eggs and needed a good recipe that didn't need them. This was it! I only had french vanilla cake mix on hand but it still worked great. I had expected these to be a little chewier but a super fast snack cake when you need something in a hurry...you chocolate cravers know what I mean!! Read More

These were pretty good - and better the second day. I found chocolate mint pudding (by Jello) at the grocery store and used that instead of plain chocolate. Wow - great flavor! I also used a 9x13 pan and they baked for exactly 35 min. People raved about them. Worth making. Read More

This recipe was so easy to make and the end result was extremely chocolatety goey centered brownies. They were still moist the next morning. I just had to cut the baking time down by 5 min. Read More

These were very simple to make but I would not consider them brownies at all. They are okay if you want to make a cake and are short on ingredients. Read More

I only had vanilla pudding in the house but it worked just fine I added a little bit of cocoa powder too to make up for the vanilla flavor but I don't think it would have mattered if I hadn't. These came out to be very moist fudgy brownies I can't believe there's no oil or eggs in them. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More
