I did not care for this recipe at all. I ended up with brownies with a thick crunchy crust on top, and raw batter underneath. I don't usually have problems with uneven cooking in my oven, so I have to attribute it to the recipe. Plus, the brownies that were cooked more around the edges of the pan tasted more like a dense chocolate cake than the chewy fudgy brownies that I prefer. Definitely not a keeper for me.

Just wonderful. Fudgy and rich, these will take the place of the recipe that stopped working when we moved out of high altitude. I cooked them in a 13 X 9 pan since I like them thick, I had to cook about 50 min, but they were absolute perfection.

I wasn't a big fan of this recipe. I don't think I would make this again
