Something else. I doubled the recipe for a party, and everybody loved them! The problem with the icing is that you need to halve the amount of icing sugar and melt the butter. This makes a glaze that you can spread on top. It hardens into a beautiful, shiny icing. Note: 1. These are neither "cake" brownies nor "fudge" brownies; they fall somewhere in between. If you must have one or the other, then this recipe is not for you. 2. Yes, the icing is sweet. If you like icing, then add it, if not, leave it off.

Altered ingredient amounts. These brownies are magnificent!!! I mean "melt in your mouth" and I didn't even make the icing. I doubled the recipe and it still won't be enough. There are a few tips that will ensure your brownies are not cakey. I do not use a mixer because you can overmix your batter and whip too much air into the eggs. This makes your brownies have a cakey texture. Mix everything by hand in a bowl and lightly beat your eggs before adding them to the mixture. Gently stirring everything together makes them turn out better as opposed to franticly beating the mixture.

great recipe :D super easy to make and doesn't take long to cook either so yey all around. Super moist and not too rich either, the icing with the honey in it really seems to go well with the actual brownie itself incredibly well so i recommend this to anyone after a brownie recipe.

love this recipe!! have made it a few times now and it's my husbands favorite. So easy with all the ingredients being pantry staples! I do replace the butter with light olive oil as well as the sugar with a low calorie substitute to make it healthier and it works out fantastic!!
