Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



I was wanting to find a recipe for brownies that had a stronger chocolate flavor than the boxed mixes. My husband is a brownie fanatic, and this hit the jackpot!!! We love it!

Absolutely Wonderful

I have made these brownies for years. The recipe that I have uses 1/3 Cup butter though, not the shortening. I make them for co-workers and friends for their birthdays. They are very disappointed if I don't make them.

Sent these to my hubby in Iraq

I made & sent these to my husband, who is in Iraq for a year & I got the ravest reviews from him & the guys he shared them with. I will be making these again for the guys while they are still there.

I altered the recipe and replaced the Chocolate Chips with Butterscotch Chips and frosted with a white buttercream frosting. They were out of this world. I also doubled the size and used a 9x13 pan and cooked them for 40 minutes. They were perfection!


Wonderful Brownies

I had planned to bring brownies to some friends home to eat while we played cards, I went to my cupboard only to find I didn't have a mix. So I went online and searched brownie recipes and found this simple and wonderful brownie recipe. I always keep chocolate morsels on hand -- so it was great for me, no trip to the store get a mix -- they are so good and easy to make, I might just be done with those mixes, the moistness and flavor just can't compare, thank you for sharing this with all of us bakers.
