A neighbor brought over a pan of these rich brownies along with the recipe when I came home from the hospital with our baby daughter 12 years ago. I've made them ever since for family occasions, potlucks and parties at work.
Shortly after we married, my husband asked if I would bake up a pan of brownies for him to take to work. I said, "Sure—I have the best recipe." He liked to cook, too, and said hehad the best recipe. To settle the matter, we each baked a batch and let his co-workers decide. My recipe won!

I have to give my husband credit for this idea—since we love chocolate and orange together, he suggested I come up with this recipe. Now they're not only his favorite, but also the whole family's. I'm always asked to bake these brownies for family gatherings. —Elinor Townsend, North Grafton, Massachusetts
This is a quick brownie recipe for when you need something good and chocolaty. Cutting them into wedges and topping them with fudge sauce dresses them up. My family loves these brownies. Our 11-year-old daughter makes them all by herself and gets raves every time.

Peanut butter lovers won't be able to eat just one of these delectable dessert squares. these chocolaty brownies are sandwiched between a graham cracker crust and peanut butter mouse. They're irresistible!
Baking is one of my favorite hobbies, and my wife says these brownies topped with a cream cheese layer are outstanding. When you really want to impress, drizzle them with caramel sauce and sprinkle on chocolate curls. —Lyle Borcherding, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
