These were EXCELLENT!! I was looking for a way to use some buttermilk I bought for making country fried steak and came across this recipe. I loved the use of packaged brownie mix, it makes life so much easier. They were super moist and the glaze was really good, although next time I am going to try water instead of milk, just personal preference because I don't like the taste of milk and you can sort of taste it in the glaze. But my milk issues aside these brownies were unbelievable.
