    Brownies burned at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. I'll taste the center later. easy to make.
    not "the best brownies ever" it's a little too cakey for my liking
    These were the best brownies i ever made.they turned out so perfect just how brownies should be.I wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars.....thank you for posting this recipe...
    Wow, I have been making brownies for over 40 years and this recipe makes...... by far ....... THE BEST BROWNIES I have ever had. The are very moist, and chewy, and have a great flavor! Not cake-like the boxed mixes make.

    The recipe is unique as it is made in the pot that you melt the chocolate in....

    I love these brownies! Yum......Yum!
    I gave this recipe a 3 based on other reviews, unfortunately. I ONLY like chewy brownies, and in my oppinion these were cakey. My husband thinks they're good.
    pretty good tho
    I have searched for a brownie recipe that didn't come out like a rock and this was it!
    This recipe is great...they are nice and chewy. I recommend it with vanilla ice cream or the powdered sugar. They were also easy to make. All my friends loved them!
    These brownies did come out amazing, but if you don't like fudgy brownies, then you may want to try another recipe. They were VERY fudgy and VERY chocolatey. If you're going to make these, I recommend using a higher quality chocolate than store-brand. I think only then can you really enjoy the chocolatey taste the brownie has to offer.
    The brownie was so soft and delicious that I would bake a dozen batches of the brownie if I wanted to.
    I thought whenI first mixed the ingredients the brownies were going to be terrible---was I ever wrong! These are THE BEST brownies I have ever tasted!!! My other brownie recipes are going in the trash!!! This is definitely the most awesome brownie I have ever made! They are suppose to be for dessert tomorrow...let's pray they last through the night!!!
