These brownies were a bit much. The wide variety of textures were great, but they were really rich, and over powering.

I fully cooked the brownies, and glad that I did. They still turned into a goopy mess when I left the whole pan out of the fridge for more than 20 minutes.

I wont make them again, but it was fun to try!

This was a solid, tasty recipe, but a pain in the butt to cut and serve. It also looked very unappealing in the pan - looked like overly chocolaty rice krispie squares, but thankfully it looked better after I cut them, but then they fell apart even after fully cooled.
