These are easy to make & definitely better than the boxed stuff. Especially if you use really good cocoa powder! I did add about 1tsp. cinnamon on a whim. I liked that this was a 1 bowl job. They'e on the counter to be eaten after lunch...I'll be back! OH WOW!! These are the best brownies ever!! Thank you! Made fo PAC Fall '08.
