These treats are similar to a blonde brownie only much richer.

WOW! These taste great. They are very fudgy! I love these squares and I'll make them again soon. I suggest adding 1 1/2 cups of skor chips and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips to make them even better. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

Despite the mixed reviews I decided to give this recipe a try. I followed it perfectly. When it was time to pull it out of the oven I found that it was hardly done cooking. The edges were starting to turn brown but everything else was still like batter. I didn't know what to do so I turned up the heat for another few minutes until the cake solidified. This caused the whole thing to turn a bit too dark. Perhaps had I started with a hotter oven the whole thing would have turned out better. However taste wise I wasn't that impressed. These squares were really spongy - perhaps because of so many eggs. I was looking for something more "fudgy" - dense and chewy. Read More

Wow! We thought these were great! We added some pecans in and they were a nice addition. They are a bit doughey when you first take them out so we cooked them a bit longer and stored them in the fridge. But a great recipe and awesome taste. Read More

Excellent! I am only 12 and this recipe was very easy for me and it tasted amazing! I didn't have brown sugar so i used white sugar and maple syrup so the fudge was a bit more light colored than i expected but i thought that this recipe was GREAT! Thank you so much Norma! Read More

It is my fault because I assumed this was actual FUDGE I was making. I was not looking for a cake/brownie type recipe. However I tried making this recipe with melted butter and with solid butter and it didn't turn out either time: same results. It wasn't cooked even though the toothpick came out clean. Read More

i don't quite understand the negative reviews on this recipe--i made 1/2 a batch and baked it in an 8x8 pan but other than that followed the recipe exactly. mine turned out pretty darn good! i've been searching for quite some time to find a recipe like this one (lots of sugar and not much flour makes more soft chewy moist baked goodies!). i would like mine a bit thicker though so maybe next time i'll make a whole batch but still bake in the 8x8 pan. although i wouldn't go so far as to call them "fudge" they are deelish indeed!

I found the squares to be too moist it took forever to get them somewhat solid and even after allowing them to cool they were very wet. I would not recommend this recipe at all. Read More

Horrible. Though the taste wasnt so bad It never turned into anything remotely edible. It was just a gooey brown mess!. Followed the recipe - Will NEVER make again. Read More
