I just made these after finding the original Nestle recipe in my recipe box...it's been there for about ten years but I'd never made them. THEY ARE AMAZING homemade brownies. Had two requests for the recipe on my first debut:) Highly recommended to anyone looking for thick fudgy delicious brownies that are not out of a box! Read More

This was great! At first even though the batter may seem a bit thick for brownies that's the way it's supposed to be. Although I think they taste better without the pecans and caramel topping but that may just be a personal preference. My friends are all begging me to teach them how to make these they loved them so much! Read More

Wow! I can end my brownie recipe search! I thought the batter was too thick too but it worked out just fine. These are fudge yet melt in your mouth good and super rich. I used oil instead of butter peanut butter sauce instead of caramel extra-dark cocoa and milk chocolate chips. You know they are done when they raise slightly and crack on the top. Read More

I wanted to use a 13x9 pan so I doubled the recipe and it was fine. If I did it again I would decrease the caramel by 25% so the cake doesn't drip over. Every body totally loved these brownies. Read More

This recipe is amazing and I will totally make it again. At first I was a little freaked out because the batter was really thick and the recipe didn't make a lot so the batter didn't cover the pan quite well but the brownies were amazing! I also thought that the brownies were powdery almost and I thought that was kind of weird but oh well. I recommend not measuring out the ice cream topping and the white chocolate chips. I felt like there was not enough when I did that. All in all these brownies were AWESOME! Read More

I loved this recipe! Made it for firefighters after a training and they loved it! I did leave out the nuts (for allergy reasons) and I threw the brownies in the fridge for about 2 hours after they cooled so they were hard enough to cut into individual bites. They were definitely a hit and I will be making this again! Read More
