MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2014

"I had made these squares when the recipe was first featured in TOH and I made them again on 9/6/14 for our chapel picnic. This definitely rates as a 5* recipe-they're so moist and simply scrumptious! I did adjust the recipe by adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the batter and I used 1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa instead of unsweetened chocolate! I used a 5.3-oz. container of unflavored Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and I'd also used 1 tsp. of salt, rather than 1/2 tsp. I greased and floured my 15x10x1" baking pan and baked 30 minutes! I got LESS than 5 dozen-I got about 3 to 3-1/2 dozen, depending on the size the bars are cut! What I did was SIFT flour with baking soda and salt and added the 2 cups sugar for dry ingredients!

I did bring water, butter and cocoa just to a boil, then removed from heat!
A tidbit-one of my cousins had prepared these bars and she also declared them a winner (I'd given her a gift subscription to TOH)! Thank you, Pat Habiger, for this recipe! delowenstein"
