"I searched for years for a brownie that was more ooey gooey than cake like and here it is. I make it in a 9X13 pan and it dissapears FAST. I found this on the back of a Hershey's Cocoa can and the icing is from a friend."

"These are delicious! I've had this recipe for along time on a Hershey's Cocoa recipe card. Very easy to make and it's a good thing too, because they disappear fast! I used the creamy brownie frosting recipe that came with the brownie recipe card. Listed on the Zaar as recipe #43891 "
"Like others, I baked for 25 minutes and did not ice. This recipe is only slightly different in texture and taste from Baker's One Bowl Brownies. I think some reviewers don't follow the directions as these were as far from cake as anything. They were dense and fudge-like. I am not fond of melting large amounts of butter in the microwave, so I used a 3 quart sauce pan and mixed the whole thing up in it. These are really delicious! Petdrwife, thanks for the recipe!"
"bake these for only 25 minutes and they were more like a cake not gooey at all. definitely a great chocolate cake recipe though."
"I was looking for a brownie recipe that was made for a 9 X 13 inch pan and used cocoa powder. What luck when they turned out to be just the kinda brownies we like. We skipped the icing part but will try that next time. Oh yes, there will definitely be a next time!"
"I made these without the topping and the nuts but I threw in an entire bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, making them the best brownies I've made yet."
"Very quick and easy recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand. The brownies are on the cake like side, but other than that they are wonderful."
"Liked this--didn't have to mess with melting chocolate with butter in a dbl. boiler, blah, blah, blah. My modifications: 3 drops peppermint oil, 1 T instant coffee, 1 t dried crushed mint, omited walnuts and added 2 bittersweet chocolate bars, chopped. With these modifications I felt like it tasted "Christmasy"--not just like plain chocolate-mint brownies. I'm not disappointed, but will probably save the mint flavor for December!"
"I didn't really like these, sorry. They were overcooked and I only baked them for 25 mins, and weren't sweet enough without the topping .. thanks"
"These are THE best brownies. And so easy to make."
"Just okay for us. Didn't rise as much as I had hoped for - were more dense instead of cakey like I was wanting. Tasted great, though."
"My first time making home made brownies! They were delicious, not hard to make, and my whole family loved them! I left them for 25 mnts too, that was a good tip!"
"Delicious! These were gone in 2 days. I only got 2 pieces. My DH and DS devoured them. Great consistency and flavor. The icing was yummy. Thanks!"
"These are the only browines I make. I underbake mine, too. 25 minutes is plenty. I never frost, but usually serve with ice cream and fudge sauce. "
"Good, but not as rich and fudgey as what my DH and DS's crave. Didn't make the glaze since am using these for brown bag lunches. Thank You Petdrwife"
"Sooo good. We loved these. My mom is very picky about brownies and even she said they were the best she ever had! We listened to others advice and baked for 25 minutes and they came out perfect. We didn't make the icing and they were still great. These will be the only brownies we make! Thanks"
"Very rich chocolate flavor!!! SO good. Followed the recipe exactly, left out the walnuts. Baked for 30 minutes, edges were beginning to pull away from pan...center was a bit gooey. I will "underbake" them next time. :) These were wonderful served warm with vanilla ice cream and the next day (when they had cooled) with a tall glass of ice cold milk. I ended up with 24 brownies as opposed to the 36, but we're not complaing. I like that this recipe makes a 9 X 13 pan of brownies instead of the typical 8 X 8 pan size. So glad you posted this recipe...and I stumbled upon it! "
