My oldest Dornette was coming home for the weekend and these were just coming out of the oven and she walked through the door! How's that for timing? I baked them and they came out easily since I lined the baking pan with parchment paper. I had to make another batch last night so she could take them back with her up north. This was decided at 10 PM. Next time she's gets a printout of the recipe and a shopping list, but believe me, it was worth baking these last night again, I got another brownie as a treat!

The ingredients looked so promising & I followed the directions exactly. They were NOT even edible! I let them sit overnite in the fridge, but they still were not edible. I am a chocoholic, but I think there was definately too much cocoa. Sorry !

This was an excellent brownie. Something just a little bit different. We also thought the cream cheese center just made them. Thanks for posting such a delicious recipe.
