Reviews for Mocha Truffle Brownies
"These brownies are the most delicious dessert I have ever tasted! They are extremely rich, so I cut them quite small. My family devours them!"
"These brownies are excellent especially served with rasberry sherbet!"
"These brownies must be very rich if a 9" pan makes 78 servings. The pieces must be very small."
