Absolutely wonderful. I live in Africa and not as many ingredients are available, yet it's still nice to have a taste from home once in a while. Due to this I could only make the brownies but they were excellent. Thanks for sharing.

These are very very good and super rich. I don't usually frost brownies but these seem better with it. I did use store-bought dark chocolate fudge frosting instead of the frosting part of the recipe. Thanks for posting!
