very good, tasted almost just like the applebees version. I didn't have maple extract, so i used a lot of extra maple syrup which seemed to make up for it. The brownies were a little dry but still delicious. I suggest maybe greasing the brownie pan also because they kind of stuck to the pan.

I made this and it is almost the same thing at Applebee's. If someone makes this I highly suggest to serve it with vanilla ice cream! There is a lil too much sauce, but this receipe is very good.

This is a pretty yummy recipe, but the first time I made it, it caved in and was a gooey mess... So the second time around, i didn't pack the brown sugar in the brownies, and it resulted in a much nicer brownie. Also, I think there is a mis-print for the sauce, it lists the maple syrup and butter under the brownies ingredients. The sauce is good, but very very rich and even after 2 pans of brownies being devoured in our home, there is still over half a batch of sauce left. so I reccommend cutting down the sauce recipe at least by half.
