Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


the best to send during deployment!

I had made these brownies for my Fiance and his whole unit who are currently deployed. They came out AMAZING, and his whole unit is demanding more already! All I did to seal them was I filled up the gallon size zip lock bags half way, used a straw to suck all the air out of the bags, then sealed. They made it there as fresh as they did when I made them :) hope everyone enjoys this recipe, i know we did!

Amazing doesn't cut it

These are the best brownies I have ever eaten in my entire life. I make them frequently for a deployed loved one, but they usually don't end up with all of the brownies that were baked because we can't stop eating them as we're wrapping them up. I'd give this 100 stars if I could.

The Best

My husband and I come from 2 different worlds, he's Southern and I'm New England. He likes boxed browines, I like homemade. This meets BOTH our tastes...FINALLY!
