"Yum! I was craving for something chocolate and was searching for an easy recipe to make. This is a quick and simple recipe. The brownies were fudgy and yummy. Tasted delicious with a cold glass of milk. Thank you for sharing."

"This is my go-to brownie recipe. It is so easy, and it turns out great every time. Rather than using the microwave, I sometimes actually just melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan on the stove and go from there with the recipe."

"These were better than I thought they would be! I was looking for a way to used up 2 random squares of unsweetened chocolate I had in my pantry and this did the trick!
