    These were nice brownies with a cake-like texture. But they were moist and chocolaty so they definitely get five stars for that. I did a variation on 1/2 the recipe using Recipe #415249 as a topping and I baked other pan plain. I left out the nuts (personal preference) but mmm! I found myself wanting "just another bite" of these. I enjoyed them lots, great with a nice cold glass of milk. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2010.

    These Hershey's brownies tastes great though not the best. It has a cake like consistency but nevertheless so tasty that DH ate them in a day! I used Hershey's cocoa here as well ;) and didn't use the optional nuts. Love the addition of sugar powder sprinkled on top. Thanks! Made for Spring PAC 2009.

    I made these last night. They do have a great chocolate flavor, I didn't use the salt or nuts. I used Sweet n low instead of sugar, so Mother could eat these. They were moist and very chewy. Thanks for the recipe.

    Terrific chocolate flavor - moist and chewy. You are right, this is a very simple recipe and for the first time I've made a terrific batch of brownies. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi coffee lover Been making this same recipe myself for about 30+ years. Only change I have made over the years is to use 1/2 C each white and BROWN sugar. I use walnuts. these are always received with glee. Thanks for posting Judy in WA
