I created this recipe because my sister-in-law really enjoys hazelnuts and is always asking me to bake with them. A plate of these rich, chocolaty bites makes a great gift, too. —Laura Majchrzak, Hunt Valley, Maryland
Some of the strawberry jam I put up every year makes its way into these brownies. I like to bake up a batch as a special treat for the learning-disabled students I teach. My husband and three sons enjoy them, too. —Teresa Jansen, Advance, Missouri
True to its name, this mild chocolate brownie is covered by a cloud of light fluffy frosting. The recipe has earned raves at over table. My husband, a pastor, and I have three young daughters who like to cook as much as I do.
People love these very rich brownies so much that I never take them anywhere without bringing along several copies of the recipe to hand out. These treats are wonderful to take on a picnic because you don't have to worry about frosting melting.

Dark chocolate is a favorite around our house, so these frosted brownies are a hit. I came up with this treat by reworking a recipe I've used for a long time. We have six children, and these brownies disappear so fast I sometimes wonder if I actually made a batch.

The first time I took these brownies to work, I knew I'd better start making copies of the recipe—they disappeared fast! My husband and kids gobble them up quickly, too. —Pat Mueller, Mitchell, South Dakota
