  1. These tasted really good! I left out the nuts. The temperature and time didn't work out for me. I ended up having to bake for about 40-45 min to have them be fully cooked. Most brownie recipes I've made have used a higher heat, so I may try that next time since this left the edges a bit burnt in order for the middle to cook enough.
  2. The Magic Brownies were a hit at my office! The prep time was accurate, the recipe was easy and I did not have one problem. The whole pan of brownies was excellent, even the brownies from the edge of the pan. I'll definitely use this recipe again.
  3. these were really yummy and i fear the rating from before is keeping others from trying these.. the instructions were perfect for me.. i even cut the butter in half!! and they still were sooo gooey and fudgy.. the only complaint was the outsides cooked a little faster and were a touch dry and the inside was still soo gooey.. almost like fudge! but i let them cool before cutting and they were gone in no time.. i've been to zingermans and they have very delicious things there but completely overpriced so this way you can make your own.. thanks so much for a super yummy brownie.. i hope the other rater will try them again and re rate them..
  4. recipe never stated when to add the flour,baking powder,and salt
