I chose not to add the extra 2 cups of sugar because the hot chocolate mix had plenty. I also decided to add 6oz of chocolate chips and topped with marshmallow fluff. It was delicious and I will make it again soon. Be careful to check it every 10 minutes or so like the recipe recommends. Mine was done after 20 minutes. Read More

Horrible! Recipe had a 40 minute "window" for baking (have never seen that before!). The brownies never "set" even after being in the oven for an hour. Finally took them out and after they cooled they were really hard and crunchy. Complete waste of time and ingredients. Read More

I only used 1 cup of sugar instead of 2. Used Swiss Miss cocoa mix and Gold Medal all-purpose flour. They ended up taking 30 minutes exactly to not be jiggling. Let them cool for about 10 minutes which made them lower down from fluffy to a chewy outside and a gooey inside. Thanks for the recipe it saved my family on a cold boring winter night! Delicious!
