ever since I found this recipe on the Ghirardelli can, it's the only brownies I make. I always omit the nuts, but that's personal preference. I tend to double the chocolate chips, which is also personal preference :) they tend to dry out after a day, so make sure everyone eats them up fast!

Got this off of the can, and they were great! I didn't add any nuts and I added probably 1/4-1/2 cup extra chocolate chips. I made two pans and one pan I did half white chocolate chips-yummy! A friend of mine asked for the recipe and I told her they dry out quickly and she said that I should use half butter (for flavor) and half oil (for moisture). I'm gonna try that next time.

So good! I didn't have any chocolate chips, but it was great anyway. I also didn't have an 8 or 9 inch pan, so I just used a pie pan and it worked fine, though a little tough on the edges. I felt the walnuts really added to the texture and flavor. I put some home-made ice cream and chocolate syrup on top and thought I was in paradise!!

These are a more cake-like brownie than I typically make. Although, I do tend to prefer fudge-like brownies, these are probably the best cake brownies I've had! Very deep chocolate flavor. I cooked them in an 8 in pan for 17 min. I think these would be really good with frosting too!

These are decadently delicious brownies, that's for sure! They were very simple to make and tasted wonderful. A chocolate lover's dream. I did use the optional double chocolate chips but omitted the nuts. Thanks for posting.

Super easy and super delicious! I recently made my 3rd batch using this recipe- they were the best yet. I left them in accidentally longer because I didn't hear the timer go off (so probably over 30 min). It made me realize the previous ones had been seriously underdone (still good though). This time I used only 2/3 cup sugar (I felt 3/4 was too much) and it tasted just fine. Wonderful. Best brownie yet.

Decadent brownies you will nibble the crumbs up from! I made these and my DD took them for her volleyball team - now I have to make them again for our household to get some! They smelled heavenly and the report back was that they are to die for! ;) Thanks for posting, GW!! **Please Review my Recipe Tag Oct 2007**
