My brownies are so fudgy, they taste like there's icing mixed right in. Back when my kids were in school, I'd bake some of these treats as a welcome home surprise. —Hazel Fritchie, Palestine, Illinois

"great also in a 9x13 pan"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2013

"I've pretty much given up on box mixes after making this because it's so yummy and versatile! I do lower the amount of sugar, though, because I actually found 2 cups to be too sweet, even using unsweetened chocolate. I usually use 1/ 1/4- 1 1/2 cups of sugar instead and that's way better. Kids love this as well!"

"When I have tried other homemade brownie recipes, they always disappoint and I always default back to boxed mixes. This recipe is the exception! So yummy! I didn't use 2 full cups of walnuts...instead I did half walnuts & half chocolate chips.~ Theresa"
