This is a GREAT brownie recipe!!! I love it!!! Way better than any boxed brownies! The only thing I adjusted was I put the batter in a 13x9 glass pan and baked it for 30 minutes and they came out perfect!!! And might I suggest, put some chocolate chips in the batter before putting it in the oven. That makes them really good! Read More

So, a good recipe overall I thought, however much more "cake" like than I prefer or expected given how dense the batter was. If you like fudgy brownies this isn't it! Maybe would be better with frosting? Also, put this in 9 x 13 pan and they were SUPER thick. Can't imagine putting this in 9x9! LOTS of batter. Would put it in a larger pan next time. Read More

I use salted butter in this recipe, pecans instead of walnuts and I add a half teaspoon of salt. One of THE best brownies I've ever had. Wanna really make this decadent? Frost these babies with Brownie Frosting, which is also from this site. Best cure for anything I can think of!! Read More

These were amazing! I made a double recipe, and they went fast. Everyone who tried one said they loved it, even those who don't usually care for nut brownies. I will definitely be making these again, no modifications necessary! Read More

I think this recipe deserves 5 stars by itself, but I made some changes that suited my own tastes. I used 1 full cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted with the 3/4 cup salted butter in the microwave), 1 tsp vanilla (I like vanilla) and a few hand fulls of walnuts (didn't measure it, it must have been more than a cup). I baked it in a 9x13x2 glass casserole dish sprayed with PAM, for 30 minutes, perfect thickness. Very good not dry but not gooey and perfect sweetness. I will use this recipe for brownies from now on, mainly because I did not NEED a glass of milk to go with them. I also did not get the pic I wanted because I had 6 children yelling for brownies and I didn't have time, lol. Read More

Great recipe! I used bittersweet chocolate chips and was thrilled with the moist, not-to-sweet taste. No changes to the recipe and will happily repeat Read More

These were the best ever. I lost Mom's recipe so had to find a new one. This is even better. I did add chocolate chips, about a cup; please don't tell the California Walnut Board but I used Pecans, they were wonderful! Family loved them! Read More
