I started making these as written with the 9x13 pan, but once I got half the batter in the pan it did not spread and cover the bottom of the pan so I switched to an 8x8 pan. Came out perfectly in the 8x8 pan. I loved them as is; just the right amount of sweet and chocolate. Of course the hubby needed more chocolate so I sprinkled some mini chocolate chips on top and smoothed them once melted. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
