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.

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.

These are WONDERFUL! I used half semi-sweet and half white chocolate chips for this and used macadamia nuts instead of walnuts.
