    the best to send during deployment!

    Amber M from ,

    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

    Tonya Cooper from

    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

    CHASITY CASH from Ellsworth, ME

    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!

    Barb Olson-Teates from MOHAWK, MI

    This is so wonderful. Recipes that have only white sugar. My husband is a diabetic and shouldn't have sweets but I can substitute Splenda for white sugar and he can enjoy. Thank you.

    To Die For...

    I. Stein from ROCHESTER, NY

    I used Douch Process Cocoa and Substituted Smart Balance Butter substitute (Cuts Fat, Hydrogenated Oils, and Cholesterol) instead of the shortening. Deep, Dark and Delicious! Best home-made brownies we ever had! Hard to stop at just one portion...

  •  Star(s)

    Great!

    Maggie Wilson from Springfield, OH

    My husband loved these! He has been stationed in Iraq twice, and I made them for he and his friends all the time. I'm having to make more now for his 3rd deployment, and I'm sure he'll be pleased with this "taste of home." They held up great and tasted fresh.

    Yummy!

    Quita Harris from LUBBOCK, TX

    I can't wait to make these brownies again. They are a hit with my nephew who is overseas in Kuwait as well as his wife and small children who are stationed far away from home. It helps bring a little bit of love to those far away.

    Absolutely Great

    S K from CHICAGO, IL

    I made these for my cousin in Iraq. Of course I had to try them before I packed them. Needless to say I needed to make an extra batch for the homefront. Thank you for thinking of our men and women in uniform.

    OH, SSOO Good!

    Jennifer Shuping from Whitney, TX

    These brownies have been a hit with my kids. I had this recipe before, but I lost it. My kids have begged me to make them again for their parties and holiday's, but haven't been able to. I am SSSOOOO glad I found it again. They always seem to disappear, and quick too.

    DONALD H SMITH from GOODYEAR, AZ

    So easy to mix, bake, and send to our Navy Grandson. Thanks for the good info regarding acceptibility in Iraq. I will use this recipe for our neighbors, church friends, and ourselves. Sure like the word "morsels" better than "chips".

    TREAT

    Elizabeth Eckley from SEBRING, OH

    I made these as a special treat.. they were so good, then I used the choclate frosting idea to frost the top of them. Cut them small there are very rich.. but as I said a special treat.

    Freakin Awesome

    Tracy Poole from Charlotte, NC

    I'd been baking cookies to send to deployed troops for over a year before I tried these brownies. They always get rave reviews even though they take about 2 weeks to arrive. Guys in different units have dubbed them "freakin awesome brownies." Thanks for helping me get a fan club of heros. ;)

  •  Star(s)

    Irresistable by us too

    Mirel Abeles from Jerusalem, Israel

    Prepared this for local Israeli soldiers- was a big hit here as well! Good not just for care packages- even my non-chocolate eating son loved it.

    IRRESISTIBLE BROWINES

    Karry Beard from INDEPENDENCE, MO

    These are great and easy to make, I grew up cooking from scratch and it was nice feeling, They taste great too! The boys say they don't last long. I'm baking these to send overseas. They also travel well.

  •  Star(s)

    Easy and excellent taste!

    r.e. Dawson from ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL

    To me this is as easy as making with a mix! I have varied the type of chips I've used and even added pecans to a Marine I send to in Japan (at his request ... those Georgia boys want their pecans!). I tasted one before I sent and they are among the moistest brownies I've ever had. When I added the nuts, I decreased chips by 1 cup and added 1 cup chopped nuts. He said he made a lot of friends giving these away so I guess I'll be baking them often, and will make them for home too.

    Great For Troops

    A Owens from salem, VA

    I mailed these to a friend who has been stationed in Iraq for nearly a year. He said he and his buddies had received several shipments of brownies while they've been there, but these were by far the best. He said the others didn't survive the trip as well (or probably weren't as good to begin with). Both the texture and flavor were great. He said he shared them "grudgingly" with his platoon and they were enjoyed by all.

    Yummy with a switch

    Gennie Siwicki from ROCHELLE, IL

    I made a batch of these for my brother-in-law who is stationed in Iraq. I substituted peanut butter chips for the white chips since I didn't have any of those on hand. They were easy to make and tasted great. I hope he agrees!

    Great and easy to make!

    DEBBIE MCLEAN from HAVELOCK, NC

    "I love 'em" is what my 6-1/2 year old daughters said after trying these. We used semi-sweet chocolate chips since we didn't have the white chips. These are very moist and a little crispy on the outside when barely warm! We made these to send to Daddy overseas. We can't wait for him to receive them since they were made with lots of loving little hands.

    I recently made these to send to our nephew over in Irag. He said they arrived in good shape and everyone enjoyed them. He said to sent more his way. I made two pans. My husband and I tasted them before sending them and they are good. I will be making more to sent to our boys overseas. God Bless them all and keep them safe.
