Top Review by sprue

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.
