Cocoa Cake Brownies Recipe

Cocoa Cake Brownies Recipe

These fudgy brownies are delicious. People say that the moist treats have a texture somewhere between chewy and cake-like brownies. We like to break them into pieces and create a trifle with chocolate pudding, toffee chips and whipped topping.—Helen Turner, Upland, Indiana

"My husband asked me to make cakey brownies for his birthday. After much searching, found this recipe. Only made two changes - increase the cocoa to 2/3 cup and added 1 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips. After all, if some chocolate is good then a lot more is even better!"
