    Best and Easiest Brownies Ever

    natasha banks from SANFORD, FL

    When I got this recipe, I made it for a potluck at work and everyone loved it so much, they didnt beleive it was made from scratch. I've made brownies before but this recipe seemed so much easier and taste great.

    The Best Brownies Ever

    SANDY BARTA from BILLINGS, MT

    These are the easiest brownies I've ever made from scratch. My family didn't care for the chocolate chips on top so I omit them and frost the brownies instead. I took some to a friend at church and now almost every Sunday her husband tells how good there were. I'm sure this will be my standard brownie repice from now on.

    I Must'a Goofed!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    My brownies were too dry! I followed the recipe exactly! The first batch was so dry that I tried a second and they were the same way. Brownies have just never been my strong suit.

    A Hit at the Preschool Picnic

    NICOLE F from HINGHAM, MA

    I made these brownies to take to my 5 year old son's pre-school family picnic. I had to omit the nuts due to allergies. These came out moist and yummy! I do think next time I will add more chocolate to the batter -- I like my brownies SUPER DUPER chocolate. My son and daughter both give these a double thumbs up! The best part is they are a breeze to make!

    LISA Russell from METAIRIE, LA

    These brownies are a chocolate lovers dream come true! My family and I really enjoyed them with a big glass of milk!

    Easy like a mix, but tastes better!

    Danica Gardiner from TAYLORSVILLE, UT

    I made these in about 10 minutes with ease. I already keep all the ingredients on hand, so I didn't have to make a special run to the grocery store to satisfy my cravings for something chocolate. We live at a high altitude, so I actually increased the flour to 1.5 cups instead of 1.3. I also only used two eggs instead of three because I like fudgy brownies more than cake like brownies. These were as fast as making them from a mix and taste better since you use all the ingredients.

    Linda Putt from Cheektowaga, NY

    I made these last nite for a bake sale today at work. They went over so well, everyone was asking who made them and wanted the receipe, I told them how to make it and also, told them the website, I got it from, so they can join too. And they too can make great desserts.

    Simply Delicious

    Deanna Parrish from Enoree, SC

    This recipe is simply delicious. I would bake this fudge every day of the week if it was at all possible.

    Did not look like the picture

    patricia greenberg from FRESH MEADOWS, NY

    The brownies were good, very easy to make, but the chips that you add after baking did not stay on. The brownies did not look like the picture!

    Yummy Brownies

    SANDY FULTON from FORT WAYNE, IN

    I tried these craggy-topped brownies and they were simply delicious. I would definitely make them over and over-we love brownies at our home anyway- When I find a recipe that is so easy and tasty I use it many times. I'm a baker anyway and I'm always looking for new recipes to try.

    So Easy - So Good!

    JAN LEBAR from ATHENS, OH

    These are my family's new favorite. My daughter had been baking the double chocolate brownies, but wanted to try something different. They're delicious even without the nuts (which she won't add!).

  •  Star(s)

    better than my homemade brownies

    Elke Lein from LEESVILLE, LA

    I've always used the same homemade recipe for my Brownies, but now I have changed to Craggy-topped Fudge Brownies. They are so dense with melt in your mouth "deliciousness" that I have to make them at least two or three times a month!!!!

  •  Star(s)

    okay but nothing special

    Julie Aamot from CUSTER, WA

    I made these for my family and they weren't impressed with them. They would have liked to have the nuts baked in the brownie. I might try making them that way.

    Easy and Tasty

    maria g from Seattle, WA

    These brownies were deeeeelish!!! It wasn't too sweet, and it was just the right kind of chewiness. The boys at my house LOVED it. Top it off with vanilla ice-cream when it's right off the oven, and it makes such good dessert. Will definitely make this again :-)

  •  Star(s)

    Great for Chocolate Lovers

    xiomara santiago from brighton, MA

    It is the best receipe for those who are craving chocolat, chocolate, chocolate. But be aware that those of you who have toddlers in thier terrible two, like I do, might not want to give them a try because they will be hiper as never seen before. Besides that, it is great!

    Terrific!!

    MARY PIXLEY from Litchfield, MN

    Was looking for an idea for a lunchbox dessert that my husband could take to work and came across this one that I had slipped into my recipe box. It was quick to make and turned out delicious! The snack fiend in our home was very happy with this brownie - and so was my husband!

  •  Star(s)

    yum

    Annette Schmidt from Greendale, WI

    These brownies had a rich chocolate taste and chewy consistency. The next time I make them I think I'll use mini chocolate chips for the topping.

  •  Star(s)

    good and chocolatey

    Carine Nadel from LAGUNA HILLS, CA

    These were pretty darn easy, the hardest part was waiting for them to chill! Being a lover of coffee, I did add a couple of tablespoons of instant coffee to the sugar and butter to give it that little extra punch

    Craggy-Topped Fudge Brownies

    I used almond extract, it made a nice difference. Really easy to put together, and I like to make the larger batchs of brownies since they do not last long.

    So easy

    Mary Price from Baroda, MI

    This recipe was so easy to make and tasted really good. I love the chocolate chips on top. I will never make a boxed brownie again.

    Craggy topped fudge brownies

    P. MITSUYASU from Ewa Beach, HI

    This is the most moist and delicious brownie I ever made (box or scratch) only thing was the morsels and nuts fell off the top. Next time I make this I'll put something sticky to make the morsels and nuts to stay. Then I'll rate it a 5.

  •  Star(s)

    Oh so chocolatey

    Tammy Miller from Omaha, NE

    The prep time took a little longer that 10 min, but the brownies were gone in less than 10 min. This was a easy recipe that produced wonderfully chocolatey results. My family LOVED them!

    Very Good

    Madonna Freed from Mobile, AL

    These are the most tasty brownies I have ever had homemade. My girls helped me bake them and they loved it! We added pecans to the mixture as well as on top and these brownies were just wonderful. This is my first recipe I tried from this site and it was the greatest! Thanks!

    Chocolatey Goodness

    Carrie Rossow from Duluth, MN

    I found these to be easy and delicious! The brownies were very moist and tasty. I took them out at 18 minutes as the edges were getting quite done. I had a bit of trouble though getting the chips & nuts to stay on top as topping. Still, these were a hit!
