excellent, my first try at baking brownies and they turned out perfect. Left out vanilla as I didnt have any, and didnt add in any extras either! very quick and easy, thanks for sharing

These are so good and so easy that they are amazing! I can't remember a better brownie. I used an 8X8 glass pan and they were pretty mushy in the middle at 20 minutes. At 25 minutes they were perfect. I did add the extra chocolate chips because they were a part of another recipe that i like.

Very good chocolate taste. A nice little brownie. Did not use either walnuts or chocolate chips, wanted it "au naturel" the first time. Will however try both next time. Will also try substituting some butter with applesauce. A good recipe to play around with. This baked for 15 minutes and using a 9x9 inch pan I cut the brownie into 12 squares. A little note to myself for the next time, 1/2 cup of butter equals approximately 80 grams. Thanks for posting.

Oops! My four-year-old was mad when he found out I ate the last one (SORRY J!). These were better than any boxed mix I ever used and the last time I used a different recipe to make brownies from scratch was a disaster. These were foolproof and delicious! Adding chocolate chips is a MUST in my opinion. Yum!

i used cocoa that's grown right here in Costa Rica. I buy it in bulk. There were great, I have to confess, I ate them all accept for one piece I gave to my partner. I'm diabetic and will try splenda next time and let you know how they turn out.

Really good and very chocolately. So easy too. I baked mine for 15 minutes and it was a tad overbaked so watch your cooking time.

These brownies are the best from scratch that I've ever baked. I added walnuts (but not the chocolate chips) and lightly dusted with them with powdered sugar. I can't thank you enough for having the nutritonal info with the recipe. My college age son is a new type-1 diabetic and he has to have a carbohydrate count for everything he eats. I'm having to search for new recipes for things I've baked for years, just to find ones with the the nutritional counts. I'm so glad I found RecipeZaar. Thank you!!!!

BLEC! My luck has run out. I was on a role, loving the recipes that I've found... until now. I made these because my daughter was after me and we were in need of a good brownie. They tasted SO bitter. Like dark chocolate (which we hate). So instead of throwing them, I found a great peanut butter frosting recipe from this site and put LOTS of it on top of the brownies and YUM. Much better. I did tell my 11 year old daughter before making these, that just because this recipe was a 5 star, it didn't mean we were going to think the same thing lol. Boy... was I right!
