    Lara H's Note:

    I was introduced to the original recipe for these while in college, back then they were called "to Die For Fudge Brownies" but I have since changed the name because while I was working as a caterer more people told me they'd kill for the recipe than I could count. I have tweaked it just a little over the years. These are the richest brownies... they are always a special request by my family and friends during times of stress or celebration. I always make sure I use the best quality chocolate I can afford, but have made it with store brand baking chips and it's still great. I like to cut them on the diagonal into diamond shapes for a special presentation. Warning: Do Not make these while you are PMSing unless you are prepared to be working out to burn off an entire pan of them for the next month. Yield depends on the size you cut them to.

      maybe i did something wrong when i made these, but i found them to be pretty greasy from all of the butter, and could have used a touch more sugar for my taste. i dont like overly sweet brownies but these almost werent sweet enough. probably not the brownie recipe i will keep sorry

      Yes! Yes! Oh, Yes! Do you get the picture? Yes, they are that good! They're definitely the best brownies I've ever made and I can't wait to wow everyone with them. They taste much more difficult than they actually were to make...pretty easy recipe. Thank you!!!

      Wow! These are better than great. Anything with 20 oz of chocolate has to be good and these are. I wanted a rich chocolaty treat and these fit the bill. We couldn't wait for them to cool and glaze so I don't know how much better that will make them, they are fantastic without. I will need to walk alot tomorrow to burn off the calories. Thanks for a great recipe.
