This was literally oozing butter. Probably need to cut the butter in the brownie recipe by half, or at least one stick. It took 10 minutes longer to bake than recipe stated and it went totally flat out of the oven due to so much butter. I put the leftover in the fridge and later, butter had oozed out of it and all the bottom if the brownie was sitting in congealed butter. Was it eaten? Yes, so three stars instead of two. i really think three sticks has got to be a typo! I already had a sauce made so I didnt follow the recipe for the sauce.
