Correction: Instead of a 12 oz bag it should read up to 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips to be sprinkled over the top of batter. Bake for 12 - 15 min if using brownie pans and 25-30 if using 9X13 or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Sorry about the mistake. Lizbeth Read More

These were really pretty bad. Way too heavy on the chocolate chips, and 12 - 15 min? You have GOT to be kidding! I baked them for 30 min and they were still raw and doughy throughout. Don't waste your time on this one, there are lots of other choices. Read More

This recipe needed some adjustments. I added 1/2tsp of salt and only put 1 cup of chocolate chips on top. No pecans either. I also baked it in the oven at 350 F for 22-25 mins. Turned out great. Yummy!!! Read More

I thought it was really simply to make and my boyfriend said they were very tasty! I bumped up the temp to 350 degrees and baked for about 20-25 minutes and they baked all the way through. I also only put in 1 cup of chocolate chips and that was plenty. Read More

I could not get the center to cook at all no matter how long I left it in the oven if you like raw dough it was OK but I tried to make for a party and you can't serve raw brownies for a party. Read More

I took the suggestions of changing the temperature/time and just eyeballed the chocolate chips and they turned out pretty delicious. I don't like regular brownies so these were a really nice substitute.: Read More
