I really like the recipe and it is very easy to prepare the brownie is very soft and moist, the flavor is excellent thx
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS CAKE/BROWNIE, & that comes from a dedicated chocoholic, so it might not mean much in some circles! Still, I guess you'd have to be one to want to make this great recipe! Loved the use of dark chocolate! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenapped tag in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #18]
These deliciously rich brownie cakes were very much enjoyed by the DS's music recreation group. I got 16 squares from the mix. Thank you Fairy Nuff. Made for Who Am I.
