Really good. My oldest grandson thought there should be more almond. But I thought the taste was just right. Will make again.

Did NOT like the frosting made with whipped topping! It is gummy and strange. Everyone here was disappointed because they love my normal brownie recipe. We scraped the frosting off and ate the brownies.

21g of Carbs for a single brownie does not make this a diabetic friendly snack and stating that it is can be dangerous!

My daughter and I did not like these at all. They went right into the trash. Too much almond and too bitter.
