These makeover brownies are still rich and moist and full of the chocolaty goodness of the original recipe. The changes cut the calories by more than a quarter, fat by nearly half and saturated fat and cholesterol by about 60%.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
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!
I've prepared this special recipe for many an open house and potluck dinner. It came from an old roommate, who is now a grandmother. While in our early 20s, we never imagined we'd be sharing brownie recipes after all these years.
"These fudgy brownies are easy to make and travel well," writes Janet Taylor from Mayville, New York. "If you bake them in a disposable foil pan for camping or taking someplace else away from home, you won't have to worry about getting your baking pan back."
