Every Fall I start baking and testing recipes for Christmas gift giving. I wanted to try the recipe first before I made the layered jar to give. My kids had a ball usining a funnel and pouring the ingrediants in the jar. Although make sure you pack everything down really well. I mean this is cutting it close....I thought the brownies were heavenly and so did all my husbands workers. (I use them to taste test my baking) I have a slight problem with semisweet chips...I always use milk chocolate And I think milk choc. chips would have taken these up a level. I think it was great and it will be given as gifts this year! Mary Read More

These were nice but not great. The mixture was so dry that i had to put one more egg. When they were baked they were also to dry for my taste not moist but had a good flavour. Read More

I tried out the recipe first to see if I liked it enough to send as presents. They were way too sweet way too dry when mixed and they needed a little salt in the mix. I'm going to try it again with 1/2c sugar 1/4t salt and 3 eggs. I mean overall it was good but it needs work IMHO. Read More

The best brownies I have ever had. I have tested them on all of my family and everyone already said they wanted the recipe. They were so moist and delicous. I did find that they were almost too thick to mix with the electric mixer so I always do the last bit of mixing by hand. But they definately were not dry!!!! I have doubled this recipe but again had to finish mixing by hand. But I didn't mind the finished product is well worth it. Read More

This is a pretty good recipe except: there is too much flour and too much sugar. I need to experiment more but my basic feeling is that 1 - 1 & 1/4 cups of flour and 1/3 - 1/2 cup white sugar would be better. A pinch of salt is good too. I subbed a 4oz container of applesauce for 1/2 of the oil to cut back on fat. REALLY YUMMY WITH A LITTLE VANILLA ICE CREAM! Read More
