This is a WONDERFUL brownie recipe, my new favorite! The most pleasant surprise was how much they rose- to the top of my pan! Of course they fell quite a bit as they cooled, but they still made a nice thick brownie! I didn't believe that they should be baked at 325, but I wish I had. They're so thick that at 350 the edges almost burned by the time the middle was done. Still delicious!

They really are the best! I have been tryin to find a good brownie recipe for a while and this is the best. They needed afew extra minutes in the oven but other than that the recipe is perfect.

These are by far the best brownies I have ever had. I put a chocolate topping on as follows: 2 tbsp butter and 1/2 cup choc chips - melt in pot, spread on brownies and cool completely. Wonderful.
