MY REVIEW

"Delicious and simple. This is the second time that I have made them and they came out beautifully each time. They do take longer than 25 minutes. An additional 5-10 minutes depending on your oven and the altitude. If the butter/sugar mixture isn't light and fluffy than the butter wasn't soft enough. This happened to me the first time. Don't fret, they still turn out. And they are thick no matter what! They are "fudgy brownies" so don't let that freak you out. It was thick enough that it was difficult to spread in the pan. I just plopped it in, put it in the oven for a couple minutes, and then pulled it out to smooth it before putting it back in. Delicious! They were a hit with my coworkers and were requested again for my boss' birthday. Don't sub margarine or Splenda! Just go for it and enjoy :)

Btw- it's bad form to rate brownies with 1star simply because there are no nuts. You lowered the entire overall review dramatically because you prefer it with nuts? That's really silly. This doesn't make them "not real brownies", just not your preference. If you want them so much, just add them! There are so many people with severe nut allergies that it is smart to leave them out."

"No nuts, not my idea of brownies. Brownies must be chocolate with nits and absolutely no icing or chips of any kind added or I don't care how good they are, they're not brownies."

"I made these Friday night. Timed them to cook 33 minutes. There were absolutely decadent. I added some chocolate, white chocolate and peanut butter morsels along with some walnuts and craisins. Probably a 1/4 cup total - just enough. I will never make a box brownie mix again. Thank you for this wonderful recipe."
