My son, Jeremy, is 36 but acts as if he's 5 when he sees these brownies—I've been making them for more than 30 years! My daughter, Jayme, and my four grandchildren love them, too. If you're short on time, a boxed mix works just fine. —Jeannine Schneider, Fremont, California
My children and grandchildren are the light of my life. I always try to have homemade cookies or brownies on hand for them when they visit. This recipe is one of their favorites. —Carol Lipp, Timber Lake, South Dakota
Thanks to a head start from a mix, it's easy to bake up these crowd-pleasing treats. It's hard to stop at just one brownie, but don't worry—my recipe makes 30 servings! —Brenda Melancon, McComb, Mississippi
“Years ago, my girlfriend and I combined our favorite brownie recipes. With the addition of miniature marshmallows and chocolate chips, we created a chocoholic’s dream recipe—and it’s so easy to double for company." —Donna Sawatzky, Piedmont, Oklahoma
“Since retirement, we’ve had to watch our calories but still like something sweet every so often. This downsized recipe helps us stay in line,” says Barbara Estabrook of Rhinelander, Wisconsin. “Sometimes I drizzle the brownies with chocolate.”
When I first saw this recipe in a local newspaper years ago, I couldn't wait to try it for our guests that very night. I knew it was a winner from the first bite. These rich fudgy brownies have been making friends merry ever since!
