These are good brownies, but I wouldn't call them lethal. I believe the recipe title is almost as important as the recipe itself, and the word "Lethal" really caught my eye, and that is the only reason I made these brownies. I have to hand it to you, Miller, there are 1,000,001 brownie recipes out there, and you certainly know how to draw attention to your recipe. As I said before, these are good brownies, but I wouldn't give up my first child for them. If anyone has a really lethal recipe, and wants a picky but cute 18 year old, I'm willing to make a trade. In the meantime, I'm still searching...
These brownies are not any better than Duncan Hines boxed brownies. They're good, but not lethal. To me, lethal would imply extra fudgy, chocolatey and rich. These were cakey outside and chewey inside and not very rich. They were good -- but like Mirjam said, there are a gazillion brownie recipes out there and to qualify for "lethal" the brownies would need a lot more "oomph".
I really liked those brownies. I couldn't stop eating them.
