Reviews for Chocolate Dipped Brownies
"Delicious! What a great idea. Next time, I will cut the brownies into 1x1 squares since they are so rich."
"Now why didn't I think of dipping them in sprinkles - grandkids loved this idea and the brownie was awesome too"
"Very easy and a big hit!!!! Thank you for sharing, will definately make these again"
"Looks delicious and that's good enough for me!"
"These brownies are a bit rich, but can be easily be cut into bite sized portions. They did take a little bit longer to prepare than expected. Next time I wouldn't make these on the same day I was cooking a big family dinner. As far as the appearance is concerned, the first several covered nicely. As the chocolate ran low in the bowl, the others didn't have as smooth of a coating. Next time I would melt some additional chocolate chips for better coverage. Otherwise, my kids loved these brownies and I will be baking them again soon!"
