My daughter made these tonight and they turned out really good! They are more cake like than fudgy, but the flavor and texture are good. Definitely satisfies our craving for chocolate cake. I calculated these as 2 points each for the points plus program. Thanks for posting!
More a muffin than a brownie, but with a nice light chocolate flavoring, this has a slightly chewy texture and good flavor. Couldn't leave well enough alone after reading the reviews, so made my cocoa tablespoons "heaping" instead of level, and added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. They rose well, with nice crowns. Made 15 in my very old cupcake tins which top out at 1/4 cup liquid (so about 1/8 cup per muffin). Will make again! Will resist adding a few chocolate chips to each...well, maybe! Thanks for posting such a good recipe.
I really liked them! They satisfied my chocolate need! My whole family enjoyed them with a great big dollop of Cool Whip Free on top. I ended up spooning almost two tablespoons into each muffin cup and I got 12 brownies. Perfect light ending to a meal. Thanks!!
