Reviews for Frosted Fudge Brownies
"Great recipe, tastes just like my grandma used to make!"
"These were more cakey than fudgey, but very chocolately and good! I added sprinkles to the top and used unsalted butter."
"A little to chocolaty for me, but loved the moist brownie taste. Everyone devoured it at the Sunday dinner!"
"Excellent, love those mushy type brownies."
"too cut back on the sodium intake... I use unsalted butter! and cut back on the sugar content as well to 1 1/4 cups! cant tell the difference either and I cheated... i used 2 different cans of chocolate frosting... every1 thought I had worked so hard to make these... little piggs!"
"My boys (who are avid boxed brownie fans) really enjoyed these. I will definitely be making them again."
"3 stars for the frosting. These didn't come out Fudge-like and they tasted too salty. The frosting was absolutely delicious, I'm going to use it for other frosted goodies in the future."
"Fantastic. Best brownie recipe ever and easy to make. Added chocolate chips (as if there weren't enough chocolate) at husband's request. Amazing!"

"Excellent recipe that I have madeMany times. Very easy to whip up with ingredients already on hand."
"These are my favorite brownies (when I'm not wanting a nut-less kind). They're so rich that it really satisfies that chocolate craving!"
"These brownies would be really good but my personal opinion about this recipe is that the teaspoon of salt should be cut to 1/2 teaspoon and the butter to use is unsalted butter then next time some one try this recipe a teaspoon of salt would be perfect"

"They were good...just turned out kinda cake like...like mine chewy!"
"These were amazing! They stayed moist and yummy for several days . . . and they only lasted that long because I hid them! Next time, though, I'll probably half the frosting. The recipe made WAY more than I needed, but it was good for use on other things like cupcakes."
"Oh my....these are so yummy and fudgy. I wouldn't change a thing. Definately took care of my chocolate craving!!"
"I love these brownies! My husband is a youth pastor and when I bring these treats for the kids they love them!! Lots of icing, if I was just making them for myself, I would maybe half the icing, but everyone else seems to love all the icing!"
"Oh my goodness, these brownies are so delicious, I couldn't stay out of them!"
"I've been making this brownies for a few years now. They never last very long at any gathering that I bring them to. And I always get people asking for the recipe."
