I assured my friend that she didn't have to wait to try one of these scrumptious brownies until she got up in the middle of the night to feed the baby! But the chocolaty treats are a perfect pick-me-up (anytime) for new parents short on sleep and energy. —Ame Andrews, Little Rock, Arkansas

"Just made this recipe this morning to serve company for lunch's dessert. The aroma as it baked was mouth-watering! The flavor was good but the texture was cake-like and not as moist as I like. I will put left-overs in good containers and try to finish them before they totally dry out."

"These were easy brownies to make. I used milk, semi-sweet chocolates and butterscotch pieces. To make healthier for a new momma, use whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup of ground flax and wheat germ. Also, consider using stevia instead of refined sugar."

"I used another brownie recipe that I love and added peanut butter/milk chocolate chips to the batter and sprinkled with the chopped snickers bar. Delish!"
