"Was not impressed. Too much work for brownies that tasted "out of the box". How much this recipe makes was way off. I made a pan of 30 mini's & still had enough batter to make a pan of regular brownies."

"My wife loves making brownies, so I let her have at it. We both agree, this is outstanding! Making the small cupcakes instead of the regular sized ones, makes having more than one a little less guilty. ;-)"

"Very good! I made the regular size cupcakes and baked them for 27 minutes. It made 24 cupcakes."

"Tried this recipe today - VERY good. We like brownies and make them frequently and these little bites are small but satisfying. I will say this as a brownie connoisseur - and my friends agree - you can't beat the taste of the Ghiradelli brownie mix I get in a 4-pack at Costco - they have that deep-down rich, chocolatey flavor that's hard to duplicate."
