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
These moist, cake-like brownies are so chocolaty-good that they'll go fast at any get-together. The sour cream ifrosting gives these yummy squares a little tang that makes them seem special. —Conni Poto, North Canton, Ohio
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.

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.

I have to give my husband credit for this idea—since we love chocolate and orange together, he suggested I come up with this recipe. Now they're not only his favorite, but also the whole family's. I'm always asked to bake these brownies for family gatherings. —Elinor Townsend, North Grafton, Massachusetts
“This recipe is often requested for wedding receptions,” says Erika Busz of Kent, Washington. “For a fancier presentation, cut the bars into triangle shapes and drizzle white chocolate over each one individually.”
