What a nice brownie recipe that gives a cake like moist texture that just melts in your mouth with each bite. I skipped on the frosting as I used these for our packed lunches but truly they are so yummy that I know either way you'll be pleased trying out this recipe. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your win during the Football Pool 2012
