Very good taste. Nice and chewy. Had a bit of a problem with the topping. It wouldn't melt in the two minutes stated. Left it for five minutes and still not melted. Since the brownie was done by that time I took it out of the oven. Scraped up the chocolate chips and walnuts from the top. Melted it in the microwave together with 2 teaspoons water. When it became a paste I spread it over the top of the brownie. Wish I had a camera to show you the result. Thanks for posting.

These are good brownies. I found that they were kind of salty, so I'm wondering if the 1/4 tsp of salt could be eliminated, since self-rising flour already contains salt. Anyway, they're still tasty, even without the extra chips on top. Thanks for posting!

Oh yum. I used whole wheat pastry flour (with the usual add-ins to make self-rising flour) and left out the nuts because we're out. Still fudgy and wonderful. When I was a kid my mom used to make brownies and when they were done she'd put the chips on top of the hot cake and, a few minutes later, use a spatula to blend out the chocolate. So after my 2 minutes in the oven I just blended them out and it worked great. I'd love to try these using prune puree for the butter and splenda for the sugar. Still plenty of fat and sugar with the chips, but a little less? We'll see. These are fab as is!

Yummy! I melted the chips in a saucepan and poured over the cooked brownies. So good! Thank you!

Delicious! I made these for a gathering and everyone kept taking them and taking them. These were quite easy to make. The chips on the topping did not melt (as they don't in the US) but I just left them looking like chips with no negative effects. I didn't use the entire bag of chips.

Just loved this Amy, did not have a problem with the topping but I don't have microwave so had to do it the old fashioned way. We are not really sweet eaters but boy this disappeared real quick. Thanks

My these were quite delicious. It was the perfect way to use up the chocolate chips stored in the freezer. I used milk chocolate chips so it was not quite as intensely chocolatey as a chocoholic might want -- unless that is your food of choice. Also used pecans which were a superb sustitution for walnuts. Thanks Amy!
