Brownies for Two

"I am always on the lookout for recipes that are for 2. I found this recipe in a little paperback cookbook "Desserts for One or Two". The recipe calls for walnuts, but any nut will do, and I even substitute different types of chips (chocolate, peanut butter, mint, etc.). It makes 8 brownines, therefore we never get tired of them before the batch is gone. Hope you enjoy."

  1. Thank you for this recipe! It's delicious! I used butter and baked them in a mini-muffin pan. It made 12 little bite-sized brownies. Yum!!
  2. very good brownies. i tweaked it a bit. added a teaspoon of vanilla and added 1/4 cup of strong coffee.
  3. this is a very good website and i am doing a project and this is a good website I need to take 2 servings and turn them into 30 serving so thanks for this website
  4. These are good, a little dry, but good for being so easy. I added some chocolate chips in before baking. Like the description states, it made 8 brownies, so a little more than "for 2" lol, but that's ok :)
  5. Thanks so much for this great recipe! I took great advice from folks--used 1/3 cup Eggbeaters & butter for the shortening. I also used Splenda for the sugar & took a chance on using 1/2 whole wheat/white flour. Hubby wanted it a little sweeter so I may use 2/3 cup Splenda next time! Instead of walnuts I added a few tbsp of mini choc chips. It was a bit difficult to "spread" in the loaf pan, so I may scour my baking pans to find a better "fit!" Baked well in about 15 min & were ready to go w/ some fat free whipped cream. Thank u again for sharing!!
