This is a favorite after-dinner treat. I’m always very careful not to overbake these brownies because I love the ooey-gooey middle. –Krista Frank of Rhododendron, Oregon

"I thought these were very good, but maybe I shouldn't rate them because I used sour cream in place of the reduced fat vanilla yogurt!"

"These tasted very odd. I don't think I will make them again. Not sure if I did something wrong or if there is something wrong with the recipe. I even used real butter."

"We love the fudginess but they are small brownies and not as lowcal as I was expecting. I can make a 170 cal. brownie from a hershey mix and that is with the added oil and such. I was just a little disappointed in that. But, they have a fudgy texture and probably would be great with a scoop of lowfat vanilla yogurt and a little hot fudge sauce."
