This goes way above and beyond 5 stars. I have made this recipe twice; once with Hershey brand syrup and the other time with a generic chocolate trust me you don't want to use a generic chocolate syrup in this recipe or you will be let down. If you want the full Chocolate affect of this flavor must use Hershey Syrup..enjoy your brownies people!!! Read More

These are really really good. I have to admit that I made a mistake. I added the evaported milk to the brownie batter and it was still delicious! They are super easy and taste almost like fudge the next day. My whole family loved them; thanks for the great recipe. Read More

I have an almost identical version of this recipe in an old book and decided to try it when I was craving brownies but didn't have chocolate chips or baking chocolate on hand for melting. Since one reviewer said it lacked a strong chocolate flavor and I also thought there would be wayyyy too much sugar in this recipe (a cup of sugar PLUS all the HFCS in the syrup?!) I made the following adjustments: I used 1 1/2 cups of syrup (as opposed to 2 cups which would be 16oz) and I added 1/2 cocoa powder. The result tasted like brownies from a boxed mix which honestly I am not particularly fond of but it wasn't too bad for a last-minute brownie emergency. I would say avoid the frosting on these if you want to actually taste your brownies. Anything made from melted chocolate like the frosting will have a stronger chocolate taste than the brownie itself and then you end up using the brownie as a tasteless spoon for the chocolate. I much preferred to eat the brownie without the frosting. Read More

Oh Myyyyyyyyyy, talk about a rich, fudgy, chewy treat!!! This is IT! I doubled the recipe and baked in a 13 x 9 for 40 minutes in my hot oven. This came out like a fudge cake. I had all ingredients at room temp prior to mixing. This is to die for! Ok, my changes were: I did not use walnuts and I used a total of 1/2 cup regular milk, 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of marshmallows for the frosting. This was out of this world! I will make according to recipe next time and not double, but still place in a 9 x 13. If you have ever been lucky enough to eat at Joseph's Storehouse and Bakery in San Antonio, TX, this is their recipe almost exact for their brownies. Read More

I gave this a 4 instead of a 3 only because the frosting was so good. The brownies are on the dry side and cakelike in texture and very thin I suppose due to the larger pan the recipe calls for. I guess I like the fudgy type of brownie better. Read More

We didn't have any cocoa powder and really wanted to make brownies. These were just about as easy as using a mix and every bit as good! Read More
