    Cindy Lynn's Note:

    Rich, tender, fudgy brownie that those chocolate lovers just can't resist. For a "mocha" experience, substitute coffee for the water. My family just can't help themselves, even when they're already "stuffed" when these are around.

      Oh my gosh!! These are so decadent! It's my first attempt at brownies from scratch, so I was a bit intimidated by all the steps - but it really was a snap, once I got all the ingredients lined up. The brownies are more cakey than fudgey, which I love, and the frosting is nice and fudgey - as it should be! :) Thanks, Cindy Lynn

      OMG, Cindy Lynn, these brownies are magnificent!!!!! I thought your chocolate cake was TOP-DOG, but these run neck-in-neck with it! They are just soooooo good! Followed your directions, and BTW, used your buttermilk recipe, of course! They're real easy to mix up and bake, and the taste is just wunnerful, wunnerful, wunnerful!! Can't thank you enough for sharing such a great recipe. Laudee C.

      Whoops!!! Make sure that you don't mix the buttermilk mix with the dry ingredients too vigorously, because they really get gooey! (just as Cindy warned they would) Even with the buttermilk clumps, they still tasted verrry good :) Next time I'll be a bit more careful.
