    great tasting brownies!

    carolina montoya from ,

    these brownies are very easy to make. i added about 1/4 tsp. of salt and about 1 1/2 tsp. of cocoa powder becuase i didnt have any chips to add and i didnt want to loose hte chocolaty flavor. i also added a dash of coffe to bring out the chocolate flavor. great taste! the only thing i didnt like was they were too thin

  •  Star(s)

    Fabulous treat

    Victoria Sampedro from ,

    I got this recipe from my mother several years ago and it is the easiest and best brownie recipe. I have switched up the types of nestle chips, peanut butter, butterscotch, etc... and it is ALWAYS a hit. I make these for my teenage students and I have actually had a student THANK ME for the brownies, he had never had homemade brownies and couldn't believe how good they are. This is my go-to brownie recipe.

    As a 15 year old girl i love my sweets. And i have to say my moms brownies don't even top these. I brought them to school and all my friends keep asking me to bake more. These might just become a part of my bakery.

    Never use a box again

    R Recchione from Delaware

    Needed a treat in a pinch. Teenagers requested brownies. Had a big bag of chocolate chips that I use for cookies. Found this recipe. Will never use a box again. Easy to make. Did melt chips and butter together in microwave. Also, 5 minutes before finished baking, topped with chocolate chips and then mini baking chocolate candies. Back in oven for remaining 5 minutes. Teens love them. And they're pretty. Messy with toppings to slice. Plan to try brownie bites in mini muffin pan so no slicing needed... will let you know.

    Lynn Verscha from , Toulon, IL

    I made these and we loved them. Thought they were a little too sweet, so reduced sugar to 3/4 cup. Cooked for 20 min.I also used marg. instead of butter.

    best ever

    kathy mogan from ,

    i love this receipe, but what i do is double all the ingredients and melt all of the chocolate chips and bake in a 13x9 pan for about 30 minutes, they are to die for. i also think they taste better made with margarine then with butter

  •  Star(s)

    Easy and Yummy

    Easy, Best Tasting Brownie EVER!

    Renee Palo from ,

    My daughter and her boyfriend enjoyed these brownies straight out of the pan as piece by piece the brownies played a disappearing act. I call them the one-pan wonderful brownies. The kids put a large brownie at the bottom of a bowl, scooped 2 large vanilla ice cream servings on top, added whipped cream then drizzled chocolate syrup over the entire dessert. They were in heaven. The rest of the night, like little mice, the kids grabbed brownies until there were only 4 pieces left. These are the best brownies I've ever made and tasted. Kudos to the brain child of these wonderful treats. Recipe as is.

    I like brown sugar in mine

    Sadie Gambino from Bronx, NY

    When I make brownies I like to put 1/2Cup Sugar in the Batter. and 1/4Cup Brown sugar mix with chocolate morsel . ENJOY with a big glass of cold Milk .

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good w/minor substitution!!!

    Jamie Feldman from Phoenix, AZ

    I thought these were really good & very easy to make. The first time I made these, I followed the recipe exactly (the reason for my rating of 4 stars instead of 5). The second time I made these, I used 1/2 cup of white sugar & 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar, instead of the 1 cup of white sugar the recipe called for. I think substituting w/the dark brown sugar enhanced the flavor of the brownies.

    Just Ok Brownies

    Reina Rivera-Ortiz from BURLINGTON, NJ

    I think the ingredient that's missing is SALT.....Salt brings out the sweetness, without salt the brownies taste very bland. I am baking them again tonight with 1/4 teaspoon of salt added to everything else.....I will keep you posted.

  •  Star(s)

    Love these

    Donna Evarts from Eau Claire, WI

    My daughter loves these, they are her favorite. I make these as regular brownies. I just melt all the chips and make a double batch. They are really good.

  •  Star(s)

    Really delicious!

    Paula Swaim from CORONA, CA

    These brownies took only a few minutes to make and just 22 minutes to bake. I used mini-chocolate chips, and instead of mixing the second cup of chips into the batter, I sprinkled the chips on top of the batter after I had poured it in the pan. It looked really pretty having all the mini-chocolate chips sprinkled on top. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the batter as it seemed to make it taste a little better. These brownies were a huge success. Everyone loved them and they didn't last long. I love how all the ingredients are easy to measure and you don't have to cut a stick of butter in half or use partial bags of anything. I especially love how everything is prepared in a saucepan! I will make this recipe often.

    These are the very best brownies ever. My family loves them and they don't last long around here. My husband can't have nuts, so I don't use them, and they are still the yummiest!!! This is the only recipe I ever use.

    Best brownies

    Haizel M from BRONX, NY

    These brownies were incredible! They were easy to make and a huge hit. My cousin took half of the batch home. This was the first batch that I didn't share with my co-workers. They were chocolatey, chewy and very yummy...everything a brownie should be. I added pecans and they were a wonderful addition.

    They're the perfect brownie! So easy to make, too.

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious and sooo easy!


    Wow! These were the easiest brownies I ever made! I went to get my mixer ready and realized I didn't need it! It was the perfect recipe because I wanted to make brownies that used semi-sweet chips (always have them in my house). I like my brownies thicker, so I baked them in a 9x9 square pan. I used some whole wheat pastry flour, too. You can't even tell! They were great. I think brownies taste better the day after when they have seasoned! Very good recipe!

    Easy Hearty & Rich Brownie


    This brownie recipe is so easy. No double boilers required. The texture is rich. I make mine with pecans. If you are feeling a bit adventurous, you can add a spash of bourbon or Frangelico into the batter. This brownie recipe is the BOMB!

    Easy Double Chocolate Chip Brownies

    Lenora (Lee) Hendrix from MOUNT VERNON, TX

    Looking for a chocolate receipe to make for a desert for Thanksgiving Dinner and found this one. My son-in-law is a chocolate nut so when I saw this I decided to try it. He asked what they were and I told him, and he tried them. I cut the squares into 4x4 and he had them eaten in two bites with the ones he put on his plate. The rest of his family also likes chocolate and they were a big hit. The receipe is so easy and are very moist. I will make these again to take any place or for home.

    Making for years

    Patricia Oser from CUMMING, GA

    I first discovered this recipe on the back of the Nestles chocolate chips bag and it has been my "staple" brownie recipe since- and this was back in the late 70's! Occasionally I add raisins- always a big hit! Eveyone always asks what my secret is...
