These are the best brownies I've had in a very long time. I would have given the recipe 5 stars only 1 small problem... the edges came out very burnt after only 40 mins. Read More

Too much sugar. Not a great texture either. There are much better brownie recipes on this site. I don't recommend this one. Read More

This recipe is very good it is crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I added chocolate chips instead of walnuts. They were wonderful. Read More

Whoah - really intense brownies here. They came out super heavy and dense and I could only take about 1 square inch of them at a time. I ended up taking them to the vultures at work because I didn't want my daughter having them either. I would cut the sugar and the butter at least in half before I tried this recipe again. They did not burn and were chewy in the very center but not really enjoyable. Read More

Don't use the whole 2 cups of sugar. They are so sweet I have a headache......Incidentally I have a serious sweet tooth. Nothing is ever too sweet for me until now. Read More

These were extremely dry. The mix didn't pour into the pan. I added the extra chocolate chips but it was still very dry. I think I'll try it again but I've been reading on some other sites and it says to dissolve the cocoa powder into the melted butter I think I'll try this to see if it makes it less dry. Read More
