MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2012

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!

MY REVIEW

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 6, 2010

These brownies must be very rich if a 9" pan makes 78 servings. The pieces must be very small.
