WOW this recipe makes a lot of brownies, but they are oh so good! To me they were more cake-y like a chocolate cake rather than fudgy like a brownie... Made as written and it was surprisingly quick and easy. I usually CANNOT make brownies to save my life, but this recipe worked well for me. Will be making these again! Made for Spring PAC 2013.
