Reviews for Brownie Mounds
"Actually I'd made these delicious treats before-last year for Passover! I used the same amout of matzo meal & 1/4 to 1/2 cup potato starch plus the same amt. of salt used in the recipe. I used 9 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa + 5 Tbsp. canola oil to = 3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted. Today when I made these Brownie Mounds, I placed a Hershey Chocolate kissin the middle of each cookie or a miniature Snicker Bar or Milky Way Bar! This added touch makes these cookies very festive! I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead of the nuts called for in this recipe! DELowenstein"
