Good basic recipe
This was my first made from scratch brownie! I added some chocolate chunks in place of the nuts, so I omitted 1/3c cocoa. They were very good--pretty moist and not cake-like(a brownie pet peeve of mine)-- but I'm glad I kept a close eye one the oven, because they cooked pretty quickly--even though I used a smaller, deeper dish. I think I might play with this one a bit, because it seemed to lack something. Thanks for the recipe.
Easy and Delicious
My go to recipe :) simple, easy and delicious my friends think I put more than those simple ingredients! It was finished straightaway
Love these brownies!! I replaced the nuts with a 12oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips :)
This is my go to brownie recipe. I always get compliments on it. Its especially divine with Chocolate Lover's Frosting from Nestle, too.
