Moist, fudgy - totally yummy. I also added about a 1/2 cup of roughly chopped walnuts, and although they didn't need it - I frosted them. These are really good if you want lots of chocolate flavor with very little guilt! I will make these again, but may have to double the recipe next time! -M :)

This has a half cup of cocoa powder listed in the ingedients but doesn't say when to add it to the recipe. I combined it in with the flour, baking soda and salt and it turned out just wonderful. Great tasting brownies. Very delicious with the Raspberry Orange sauce.

These are a nice low-fat treat. My kids loved them even after I told them they are low-fat....I will be making these again. They are very moist and GREAT ! :)
