IMO this recipe calls for WAYYYYYYY too much sugar. I used only 1/4 cup and it was fine. It's a nice quick recipe, but it was on the dry side and I only baked it for 4-1/2 min. I'll try adding a little milk next time. A generous amount of chocolate chips would make this AMAZING! I also added some grated orange zest to the batter which gave it a nice twist. Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic quick chocolate fix! Made it as stated, except used mini bundt silicone pan, threw in a handful of choc chips and cooked for whole 5 minutes. What came out was moist and fudgy chocolatey and delicious! Thanks!

One evening I returned from hospital where my husband had surgery. It was late and I needed some comfort chocolate and there were no bars left. I remember seeing this recipe and looking at it I realize I have all the ingredients to make this. So quickly the badder was made and put into a pan and in the microwave. I had serious doubts about this recipe. In five minutes I took the pan out. It was exactly 12 minutes after 11 PM. I was suppose to let it cool but I did not do this. After I had a small square I cut the rest into squares and by 11: 48 they were all gone, my nerves settled and I was headed to bed. The brownies were so moist, chewy and seriously dense with chocolate flavor and I had not one atom of guilt over eating the entire lot. I shared this with two of my friends and they are making them in the coming days. Thanks for this recipe.

These were pretty good! I reduced the sugar to 3/4 c and will probably use a little less next time. They were sweet. I increased the cocoa by about 1 Tb and added a dash of cinnamon. I microwaved them for the full 5 mins in a loaf pan with just cooking spray. Next time I want to try adding a little coffee and some chocolate chips. These brownies were a cross between brownie texture and cake texture.

Loved these. They were quick and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written and these turned out wonderful. I cooked mine for 4 1/2 minutes. The only thing I did different was I didn't have a pie pan so used a 9x9 silicon pan and didn't add sugar to the pan after spraying with PAM. Will be making again.

Delicious! My husband & daughter really enjoyed these. Cooked at 500 W for 5 minutes. For a dinner party I put the dough in little glass custard dishes and decorated them with white icing and chocolate sprinkles and topped with whipped cream.

Good and easy. I added 1/2 cup crush peanut. I found it a little bit to sweet, so next time I'll try reducing 1/4 cup of sugar. Thanks! Silicone pan for microwaves doesnt require the grease and sugar coat

pretty good! works well with 1/2 cup of applesauce in place of butter. this does make it taste a little off but saves 750 calories. thanks for the recipe!

Delicious! Perfect for a fast chocolate fix. Also delicious with 1/2 the amount of cocoa. By the way, it doesn't work in an 8x8.
