These crisp, chocolaty squares make a noteworthy addition to any party or holiday tray. They mix up in one bowl and bake in 30 minutes. Delicious straight out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A true favorite!

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Very Delicious

I brought these for a school function and they were gone quick! I had made them the week before and found that they got hard and stale very fast so I made them the night before and carefully secured them. They stayed moist and delicious!

This was very easy to make. But my whole family and myself thought it was very dry and not good as your usual recipes are.

Easy and Good

This recipe is very easy to make and very good. It didn't last very long because my family ate it so quickly. I will be making it again.

Not my favorite

The pics looked so good and I thought I would really enjoy it...however, it was disappointing in my families' eyes. We thought it was too dry : (
