"We loved the filling, but the brownie was more like cake. I will make the filling again, but use a different brownie recipe. Thanks for sharing!"

"Most brownie recipes say to mix just until dry ingredients are moistened, so I did that, but the brownie was more dry and "cakey" than I like for a brownie. Maybe someone else could do it better."
