I'm a chocolate lover, and this treat has satisfied my cravings many times. No one guesses the brownies are light because their chewy texture and rich chocolate taste can't be beat. My family requests them often, and I'm happy to oblige. —Heidi Johnson Worland, Wyoming

MY REVIEW

"Made these brownies with my kids for fiances bday and we all really enjoyed them. They are very soft and good warm too. I enjoyed them best after keeping them in the fridge overnight and then letting them sit out to become room temperature. (Very moist). My kids enjoyed them best warm out of the oven. I ended up using regular butter and cream cheese( not low fat) and they were good. ( what I had on hand) Next time I'll try with low fat ingredients. Also only had an 8x8 pan so that's what I used. I just cooked them like 10 min longer. Still came out fine"
