Top Review by mianbao

I've been thinking about making these for quite a while now. Well, I finally got around to it, and am I glad I did. These brownies are moist, chocolatety and full of hazelnuts. They would be wonderful in a sundae, but are just fine as they are, too. The recipe was clear and easy to follow. Thank you very much for posting it, 1Steve.
