MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 25, 2010

Yes, these are good- everyone enjoyed these uncommon brownies.

The walnuts give a very nice flavor and the carmel frosting is addictive.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2009

Everyone really liked these, personally I thought they were a little bit too sweet...but that was mainly because of the caramel icing...i think next time i'll put a little less confectioners' sugar.
