These brownies are so good! I had a guest recently overcome his embarrassment to ask if he could take the leftovers home. (Edited after Megnbryce's mom review to correct posting error.)

These were excellent!!! I used butterscotch chips instead of chocolate, and then I topped mine with home made peach compote and it was amazing! I also baked these at 375 for 25 minutes and they came out chewy, but I like em that way. Excellent recipe, thanks!

Very easy to throw together, but I had some trouble baking them. The first time I made these, I baked them for 30 minutes. At this point they sure looked done, but it turned out they were not cooked through. So I tried again, this time cooking them about 37 minutes. They still were a bit gooey and sweet for my personal tastes, but boy the kids did not agree w/ my assessment--they inhaled these, and so did the neighbors kids. Thanks Julie!
