I think the phrase "packed brown sugar" may be misleading. I followed the recipe to the T and packed the sugar. The center of the brownies were not fully cooked and it was nearly like biting into brown sugar. I tried them again, using un-packed sugar and they cooked throughout. I used white chocolate chips in the first batch which were much better than the chocolate chips I used in the second batch. I served the brownies topped with a sauce made from caramel, butter and evaporated milk (heated in a saucepan) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was very tasty. I will make this one again with less brown sugar and white chocolate chips. Thank you for posting this one.
My 10 yr old's first attempt at baking,and she chose this recipe.They turned out fabulous!Fast and easy to make,with delicious flavor.Tasted like a toll house cookie only softer,more cakelike.Will make this one over and over again.Yummy!!!
Very easy and very good! Nice for those times when a 13 x 9 just won't quite be enough. I omitted the nuts and used 3 cups choc chips.
