This is the BEST recipe I have ever made from-scratch brownies with. I didn’t have the nuts or anything else to add to them, and they still tasted awesome plain. This came from my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.

I wanted a really chocolatey brownie and was a little disappointed that this wasn't it. I think next time if I try this recipe again, I will add some chocolate chips to give it more chocolate flavour. I liked that this recipe was really I think I would like to try tweaking it to match my tastes. It was really quick too!

These were good. I just thought that they would be less cake-like and more fudgy. I did add some cinnamon to them. They do have a really good taste to them. Thanks!
