Definitely will be our "chocolate lovers" favorite! Big enuff to share (if u dare!) & soft enuff for those who like their brownies a little less chewy & more cake-like. This recipe is a crowd pleaser!!! "When are u going to make those big brownie jumbos again?", I"m often asked??? Best part is, I always have the ingredients on hand!!!

This is definitely an "over-the-top" cookie, but in a good way. Absolutely delicious. I did have to chill the batter a little bit after mixing otherwise they spread too much. After 15 minutes in the refrigerator the batter was much more manageable.
