Reviews for Chocolate Chip Fudgy Brownies
"As suggested I cut down the butter and they were not greasy. Very tasty and chocolaty! The nuts made them fabulous!"
"Very tasty but oh, so greasy. Next time I'll use less butter. Perhaps only one stick. Way, WAY too oily!"
"I love this recipe! It melts in your mouth!!!"
