    These are really yummy. I added 1/4 cup of cocoa so that they were more choclaty and used peanut butter chips. So, so good!

    Before I start on my changes let me say that these were fabulous. Well, I cut down on the sugar by 1/2 a cup and the butter I only used a stick and a hlaf. The last half of butter I used to make a frosting with a smidge of Bailey's. I don't know if it was my oven but they only took 30 minutes to bake, good thing I checked. Plus one bowl means less cleaning for me! Everyone at work LOVED them and I'm trying very very hard not to eat them. :)

    First of all, these were amazing! I followed the directions EXACTLY as written. I added 4 tbls of Bailey's, 1/2 a bag of semisweet chocolate chips and my god these are delish! I also made a quick icing of butter, powdered sugar and baileys! My goodness, these are gooey and fabulous! definitely put into my favorites!

    These turned out differently than I expected. I felt there was hardly any chocolate flavor. They were similar to 'blond brownies' I thought. I used Kahlua. They were very moist, in fact they were kind of sticky, but an enjoyable little treat. Thanks for sharing!
