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

"For costing at least $7 a pan (and that's with buying all the ingredients on sale over the course of a few months), these brownies don't taste as good as the $1box of Betty Crocker brownie mix. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement, particularly with all the 5-star reviews. I used high-quality ingredients that I trust with all my other baking that turns out wonderful. The only new item was the can of chocolate syrup and I assume that was the culprit for the chalky taste and gluey texture. Not sure if the syrup should have been a specific brand. The texture of mine also looked nothing like the photo.

The frosting was tasty and set up nicely in the fridge, which is why I still gave the recipe 2 stars."
