I've made these brownies dozens of times and everyone asks for the recipe, They really are perfect.
I way over-baked these the first time, to the point that they were rock hard. They didn't look ready after 30 minutes. My mistake. I tried again a week later, following the instructions exactly, and wow! These are wonderful brownies. They went fast, even the first bunch - the flavor is that good. Thanks for posting.
These are excellent! Couldn't find my mother's famous recipe anywhere. These sounded like they would come the closest, and they did indeed. This is definitely a keeper for me. I made "Katharine Hepburn's Brownies" about a week later, and everyone agreed that these were loads better. We love them moist, and they were indeed. Thanks. :)
These were great and really easy to make!
Superb-ly scrumptious! I never knew how quick and easy making homemade brownies could be; and so much better than the box! Thanks so much for sharing!
One word: DEEEEEEEEVINE!!!! I have been searching for a brownie recipe that would produce an ooey-gooey, really chocolaty, soft, and rich brownies and this one is IT!!! I took the advice of another reviewer and added some chocolate chips upon melting the shortening. Also, for personal preference, I reduced the sugar. Will definitely make these again... and right now sounds like a great time as the ones I JUST took out of the oven are about all gone!!!
these were wonderful! Thank you so much. The batter was thicker than I was expecting, but they turned out amazing. I will make these again!
EVERYONE asks for my brownie recipe when I serve these. I've experimented with the recipe a bit and have found that I get the best brownies when I add 250g of milk chocolate to the melted shortening and melt them together. I also reduce the amount of shortening and sugar a bit to make up for the chocolate. Also, I tend not to include nuts because lots of people don't seem to like them =( But thankyou sooooo much for the recipe!
My daughter and I made these brownies. I usually can't pull off making brownies from a box, but let me tell you...these brownies are the most divine brownies I have ever put in my mouth!!! They were a hit with our family. My daughter wants me to make them for her birthday party. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful, yummy recipe!!
I added a 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and left out the nuts. These were simply decadent. Thank you!
