These moist and fudgy squares are bursting with such rich chocolate flavor, you'd never know they're low in fat. "These brownies are ideal for taking to bake sales and family gatherings or sharing with co-workers," Deb Anderson of Joplin, Missouri relates. "For holidays, I like to dress them up with colorful candy sprinkles."

"The brownies were not fudge like at all, they are very dry, almost like cake"
