I only used 1 cup of flour, as other reviewers suggested, and they came out better than I expected! Very yummy, and not cake-y, just what you would expect brownies to turn out like. I added so...

These were definitely fast and easy to make, using ingredients I had onhand. (I also reduced the flour to 1 cup, as other reviewers suggested.) The brownies came out cakelike, with a very mild c...

This recipe lives up to it's name! We did not have a mix, so I thought I would give it a try. I hate the mess of melting chocolate (other recipes) and I had cocoa powder on hand. Also, I used...

Eggs make brownies cake-y and since we like chewy brownies, we used 2 eggs instead of 4, and 1 cup of flour instead of 1 & 1/2. We added 2 tsp of freeze-dried coffee to increase the complexity o...
