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.
These are really good. I added a tablespoon of vanilla and reduced the brown sugar to two cups. "Packing" brown sugar doesn't work for me. I just fill the measuring cup to the proper amount and level it with a knife. I do tap the cup gently to make sure there aren't any air pockets. Also tried subing 2 cups crushed butterfinger bars for the chips--makes a nice change with pecans instead of walnuts.
According to my DH, these just didn't compete with my MIL's recipe. I need to find it and post it. I chose it because of the large batch size (to bring for funeral luncheon) and I certainly would enjoy eating these although I won't be making it again.
Excellent chewy brownie! I omitted the nuts due to DS allergy. Rave reviews from DH and several neighbor kids too!
This is very good. I did find it very sweet though, maybe a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I won't use as much sugar. I used sultanas instead of walnuts as I have young children. Thanks for posting.
I made these for a graduation and they turned out great, nice flavor. Big hit with everyone! Thanks.
Very good recipe!! Hubby and his card party are enjoying them!! I used mini choc chips...and pecans (it's what I had on hand) Thank you!! Katie
These are WONDERFUL! I used half semi-sweet and half white chocolate chips for this and used macadamia nuts instead of walnuts.
