Very good brownies...thanks for the recipe! Topped it with a glaze while still warm from the oven.

Loved these! I actually baked them on top of a peanut butter cookie dough. It took about 25 minutes to cook but oh so very good!

I joined just to write and say how good this recipe is. The brownies are crisp on top and gooey in the center. I made the recipe exactly, just no chips, At 15 minutes, they were runny, and at 20 still needed a few more, so I cooked them for 22 minutes total. They are cakey but still nice and gooey in the center. Thanks so much for the recipe, I'll make them again.
