    Something else. Don't use the walnuts (it tastes better!)  -  13 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Fantastic recipe, these turned out amazingly well, ALTHOUGH you will need to split the mixture into two tins or use a bigger tin than stated as there is too much mixture for a tin that size. I made these for pudding and served them warm with vanilla ice cream and they were heavenly. Remember they are not supposed to be spongy in the middle so if when you take them out of the oven you think they are not cooked don't panic plus will set a bit more once cooled.  -  29 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I divided the mixture into two tins lined with non stick baking paper and it came out perfectly. There was far too much mixture for one tin. Twice as many brownies - yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!  -  05 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
