I made a batch of these to send to my boyfriend who's away at work, and wow, were they ever good! I had to keep the rest of the family away! Very easy to make, so rich and fudgey, and most importantly, they travel really well! VERY impressed with this one

Ok, as far as fudgey and rich goes, these were off the charts gooey, tastey, and fantastic. I was craving chocolate one day and happened to have all the ingredients on hand (I made mine without nuts) I frosted them while they were still a bit warm. It was a bit of a mess, but that night, the next day, and the day after that I enjoyed some very yummy brownies. Just one very small piece was enough to satisfy this chocoholic's hard care craving.
