tasty and fun brownies. i didnt wait for the first layer to cool all the way before adding the second layer (too long for the oven to be on) it turned out great. i also like the consistency of the frosting. i lined my pan with foil so i could easily remove them before cutting. thanks these were a hit.

These are yummy! I do not have a 11x7 pan, so I used a 9x13 pan and reduced the baking time of the second layer to 15 min.

This is my all time favorite brownie recipe. My mom has been making these since I was little, and I LOVE them! Everyone should try these at least once, they give a whole new meaning to the term "brownie".
