    These are probably 4 stars as written, since several people found them to be dry, but with the addition of 2 extra tablespoons of butter and chocolate chips instead of walnuts, I think they are 5 star taste--rich fudgy and delicious! We did have to add about 8 minutes to the baking time. Will make again with these changes.  -  05 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    WOW WOW WOW!! I have made many different brownies from various recipes and this is THE BEST by far. My whole family went crazy over these and they did not last the night. Will be making these A LOT. No need to search for that perfect brownie recipe any longer....I've found it. I did add more butter than it called for, though, and I suggest USING PECANS!!!! We ate it still warm with ice cream and....well....they are excellent!!!!  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've never made brownies from scratch before so I went perfectly by the recipe minus the nuts and it turned out GREAT! A little cakier than I prefer but moist and BODACIOUS! And so easy, satisfied my craving for baking and chocolate.  -  26 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
