I read the reviews here for this brownie and also on The recipe on called for an 8" square pan. I think I would use that size pan next time so that the brownies would be a little bit thicker. The 9" pan makes a thin brownie. There were many negative comments about the frosting so I went with my tried and true brownie glaze. It is the same ingredients only the butter is melted and I adjust the confectioners sugar until I get a nice consistency.

Unbelievably good! Super easy to make and all ingredients are spot on. I suggest using butter and honey. They make the difference.

Very good chewy brownies! I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan, and they turned out great. Thanks!
