    If you double the recipe how long do you cook it in a 9 x 13?

    I read the reviews here for this brownie and also on The recipe on called for an 8" square pan. I think I would use that size pan next time so that the brownies would be a little bit thicker. The 9" pan makes a thin brownie. There were many negative comments about the frosting so I went with my tried and true brownie glaze. It is the same ingredients only the butter is melted and I adjust the confectioners sugar until I get a nice consistency.

    Very good chewy brownies! I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan, and they turned out great. Thanks!

    Wonderful! A cross between a fudge and cakey brownie with rich chocolate flavor. Was glad I added the frosting on warm brownies. So good! Used butter in the brownies and honey in the frosting. Doubled the recipe and baked in a 13x9 pan for 25 minutes. Excellent in every way. This recipe is also posted on AllRecipes where it has more than 4900 reviews:) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I made these in an 8-inch pan and they turned out perfect. The frosting tasted very good but it could have been a bit more abundant (thus maybe 1-1/2 recipe or double it), but it was super easy to make. I used the corn syrup and 1-1/2 tablespoons of milk and it turned out a perfect consistency. Very delicious!

    Unbelievably good! Super easy to make and all ingredients are spot on. I suggest using butter and honey. They make the difference.
