"These are great brownies, but they were not "fudgey (sp?)" but more like dense moist cake. Followed recipe exactly. Also, I took mine out of oven at 20 min and should have (maybe ?) even taken them out sooner so be sure to check early."

Now I will bake coconut brownies."

"Just made these and they are great! I found this recipe in one of the Taste of Home magazines (Brownies and Bars I think). Anyway, they had a tip in there to add chocolate chips. I added a half a cup of white chocolate chips and a half a cup of peanut butter and milk chocolate chips (combined). They turned out great! Will definitely make these again."
