These megabrownies are supestars. Chewy, but not mucky or sludgy, these are a real favorite in my home.

It had a nice fudgy flavor, but it WAS mucky and sludgy. I followed the recipe exactly, and baked according to your instructions, but it was still very wet, so I baked it further, but that left me with the corners hard and dry, and the center just a little less wet.

Ok I have to admit, I did not make these, my DD did, she doesn't do nuts, so she left them out, I got to try one that they saved for me and even the next day, it was moist and really good- Thanks Marie Alice!
