FYI- DO NOT USE OIL! Either use the butter/margarine it calls out for or use Vegetable Shortening. Very important!! These were the tastiest, most delicious homemade brownies I have made. I have tried several throughout this site and others and they have never given me that chocolatey taste or that fudge-like texture. I'm vegan so I had to use an egg replacer and I used vegetable shortening instead of the butter. I will be making these again. Thanks!

Mmmm mmm MMM!!! This is the BEST brownie recipe I have ever made y'all! It was quick to do! The only thing I had an issue with was that mine took 35 minutes to be ready, but i did use "I can't believe it's not butter" so maybe that had something to do with it! These brownies have a slightly crunchy top, and a chewy DELICIOUS center! I will be for sure making this one again!
